Trailer: Taylor Kitsch, Michael Shannon In “Waco”

Paramount Network has release the first trailer for “Waco,” the upcoming six-part event series that tells the harrowing true story of the 1993 standoff between the FBI, ATF and David Koresh spiritual sect, the Branch Davidians, in Waco, Texas in 1993.

Taylor Kitsch does a fairly uncanny take on Koresh in the clip, while Shannon stars as the FBI’s Head of Crisis Negotiation Unit Gary Noesner.

John Leguizamo, Andrea Riseborough, Rory Culkin, Melissa Benoist, Paul Sparks, Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim, Julia Garner and Annika Marks also star in the series which premieres in January.
