Tom Hardy is bringing his special brand of crazed menace to FX with the new eight-part miniseries, Taboo. Here is a new trailer for the series, produced by Ridley Scott and his Scott Free studio:
Here is a synopsis of Taboo from comingsoon.net:
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.
This looks fascinating, if for no other reason than the presence of Tm Hardy who I would watch ride in a car for an hour and a half. Hey… I did that!
Taboo will hit FX in 2017, so we have a long time to wait…
