Web series Sudden Master, an English- and Mandarin-language project commissioned by OMNI Television, is set to premiere on YouTube this Sunday at 10 p.m., coinciding with the broadcast bow of crime drama Blood and Water.

At 9:55 p.m., five minutes before the Blood and Water premiere, OMNI will also air a five-minute behind-the-scenes documentary segment on the making of Sudden Master to promote the series.

Nataline Rodrigues, director of original programming, Rogers, said pairing the premiere of Blood and Water with Sudden Master was a good opportunity to capitalize on the buzz of the former, and to also reinforce to audiences that OMNI and Rogers are revitalizing its programming lineup to engage viewers with content presented across multiple platforms.

The 5 x 6-minute series was originally made as a short film and tells the story of Alex Cheng, who must defend her father’s martial arts school in a high stakes tournament. The project’s action scenes are choreographed by world champion martial artist Alan Tang, and features stunt performers who have also appeared in Resident Evil, Pacific Rim, and Lost Girl.

Sudden Master will be available through OMNI’s YouTube channel.
