First Official Trailer for FX’s Taboo

Tom Hardy is a ‘very dangerous man to know’

Although Tom Hardy is known primarily for his film roles such as Bane in Dark Knight Rises and his villainous turn in The Revenant, he’s been known to grace the small screen as well.  He’s excellent in the English gangster series, Peaky Blinders and is returning to TV with a new show Taboo.  Hardy executive produced the show, along with Ridley Scott, as well as sharing writing duties with his father and Locke writer, Stephen Knight.

Danish director, Kristoffer Nyholm, best known for directing the Scandinavian version of the Killing, which was later adapted for American television, is at the helm of this gritty series.  It looks fantastic, Hardy’s leviathan monologue was enough to sell me on the show.  Taboo also features an impressive including Jonathan Pryce from Game of Thrones and Michael Kelly from House of Cards.  The official synopsis is below.

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.

There is no official premiere date, but the series will premiere sometime in 2017.
