Fu (1972–1975) is an American television series that
starred David Carradine. It was created by Ed Spielman, directed
and produced by Jerry Thorpe, and developed by Herman Miller, who
was also a writer for, and co-producer of, the series. The show
was preceded by a full-length feature TV pilot, an ABC "Movie of
the Week", which was broadcast in 1972.
Kung Fu follows the adventures of a Shaolin monk, Kwai Chang Caine
(portrayed by David Carradine as an adult, Keith Carradine as a
teenager and Radames Pera as a young boy) who travels through the
American Old West armed only with his spiritual training and his
skill in martial arts, as he seeks his half-brother, Danny Caine.
Keye Luke (as the blind Master Po) and Philip Ahn (as Master Kan)
were also members of the regular cast. David Chow, who was also a
guest star in the series, acted as the technical and kung fu
advisor, a role later undertaken by Kam Yuen.
