These are the Armies of the Night!
Adapted from the original novel by Sol Yurick and the screenplay by Walter Hill, The Warriors miniseries, like the PS2 videogame starts some months before the events in the film unfold.
Set in an alternate late 70's era, the series follows the exploits of a Brooklyn street gang looking to survive where New York's streets are rife with crime, notably gang violence and grand theft.
The Warriors, a rising street gang comprising of former members of the Destroyers and the Coney Island Dominators (who are no longer), out to make a rep for themselves running protection rackets all over Coney Island and fighting off the increasingly totalitarian regime of a racist, fascist police force and rival gangs and stealing what they can on other gangs' turf.
When the Grammercy Riffs, the largest and most powerful organised gang in the city send the word that their leader Cyrus wants to make a proposal to every made gang in the city, the Warriors seize the opportunity by getting themselves on the map, which means provoking bad blood with every major gang on the Riffs' network.
What they don't realise is that on the fateful night when Cyrus will be assassinated by the leader of the Rogues at the meeting all the way across the other side of the city, the Warriors will be framed and every gang they ever messed with will be after their blood, the Rogues in hot pursuit to make sure they never tell the truth and the Riffs not far behind!
