James Clavell's blockbuster novel of rivalry, extortion and murder comes to life in this mesmerizing miniseries set in the high stakes business world of Hong Kong. Ian Dunross (Pierce Brosnan) is named "Tai-Pan" (supreme leader) of the powerful British-East Asia trading company, Struan & Co., just as rival (John Rhys-Davies) attempts a hostile takeover. Suddenly plunged into a criminal underworld of international espionage, deception and financial crises, Dunross turns up the heat by engaging in a dangerous romance with his nemesis's aide (Deborah Raffin). But with danger lurking around every corner, Dunross ultimately sees he has no choice but to fight for his company's honor and survival.
