TV show description:
After returning from an expedition with a rare artifact, Jackie Chan (himself) is recruited by a secret government agency known as Section Thirteen.
Working under Captain Black (Clancy Brown), Jackie initially races against the Dark Hand crime syndicate to find twelve magic Talismans and discover their powers. Jackie’s job would be a lot easier if he didn’t have to care for his impetuous niece Jade (Stacie Chan), who has just arrived from Hong Kong.
Thankfully, he has the help of his cranky shopkeeper Uncle (Sab Shimono); Mexican masked wrestler El Toro Fuerte (Miguel Sandoval); El Toro’s #1 fan, Paco (Franco Velez); and former bad guys like soft-spoken giant Tohru (Noah Nelson) and beautiful Viper (Susan Eisenberg).
Working against them are dark chi master Daolan Fong (James Hong); evil dragon Shendu (James Sie); Shendu’s teenage son, Drago (Michael Rosenbaum); Dark Hand leader Valmont (Julian Sands, later Andrew Abelson, then Greg Ellis) and his Enforcers bodyguards – disco fanatic Finn (Adam Baldwin), oafish Ratso (Clancy Brown), diminutive Chow (James Sie), and fearsome fighter Hak Foo (Jim Cummings, later John DiMaggio).
