FX has released the first trailer for their upcoming miniseries by and starring Oscar-nominated actor, Tom Hardy.
It looks fantastic!!
Set in 1814, Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed.
Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father's shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father's legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence.
Encircled by conspiracy, murder, and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.
Taboo is based on an original story by Hardy and his father Chips Hardy, who is also the show’s consulting producer.
Taboo is directed by Kristoffer Nyholm and reunites Hardy and Knight for their third collaboration following Locke and Peaky Blinders.
Taboo is expected to air on FX sometime in 2017.
