FX and BBC One have premiered a new promo for “Taboo,” the eight-episode event series starring and executive produced by Tom Hardy, Ridley Scott and Steven Knight. “Taboo” will premiere on the network in January.
Set in 1814, Hardy plays 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.
“Taboo” is currently targeting a very early 2018 release.
