First Trailer: Tom Hardy In FX’s “Taboo”

The very dark and gritty first trailer has arrived for “Taboo,” the upcoming eight-episode BBC One and FX event series both starring and co-created by acclaimed British actor Tom Hardy.

The story follows an adventurer who returns to Britain from Africa, along with fourteen stolen diamonds, to seek vengeance against the East India Trading company who had a hand in the death of his father. Jonathan Pryce, Michael Kelly, Oona Chaplin and David Hayman co-star.

Hardy and his father Chips Hardy came up with the story which Steven Knight, who previously worked with Hardy on both 2014’s “Locke” and the TV series “Peaky Blinders,” has penned. Hardy, Knight and Ridley Scott amongst others serve as executive producers.
