FX just released a trailer for Taboo, its new mystery-drama inspired by an idea from Tom Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy, Variety reports. The eight-episode series, a collaboration between FX and BBC One, will be produced by Ridley Scott and Steven Knight, and directed by Kristoffer Nyholm.
What part is taboo?
The show will star Hardy as James Keziah Delaney, a shipping heir who returns to London in 1814 in order to take over his recently deceased father's crumbling business. From the trailer, it seems like Delaney's father was in business with quite a few untrustworthy people, several of whom have mustaches, guns, bags of jewels, and devious agendas.
There are no details yet on an official release date.
