Apparently, every movie star is doing “prestige” TV. The latest actor to explore the medium is Tom Hardy. His new drama centers on a long thought dead man, who returns from 18th century Africa to inherit the family business. Taboo hits FX January 10, 2017.
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.
