Audiences worldwide are getting an exclusive look at Taboo, the new drama series starring Tom Hardy, who is currently nominated for an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for The Revenant. The show is also executive produced by Hardy alongside Ridley Scott and Steven Knight who created the eight-episode drama series. The first trailer is being released as production continues in London with a major international cast for FX and BBC One. Taboo is currently anticipated to air in 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.

Taboo is based on an original story by Tom Hardy and his father Chips Hardy who is also the show’s consulting producer.

Ridley Scott’s Scott Free London and Tom Hardy’s Hardy Son & Baker are producing for FX and BBC One with Sonar Entertainment distributing worldwide outside the UK. Executive producers are Ridley Scott and Kate Crowe for Scott Free, Tom Hardy and Dean Baker for Hardy Son & Baker, and Steven Knight, with Timothy Bricknell producing. Taboo is directed by Kristoffer Nyholm and reunites Hardy and Knight for their third collaboration following Locke and Peaky Blinders.

In addition to his work in The Revenant, Tom Hardy most recently played the lead role in the Oscar-nominated Mad Max: Fury Road.  Ridley Scott’s The Martian is currently nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Motion Picture of the Year.
