Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

FX’s Tom Hardy drama “Taboo” will pre­miere on Jan 10 at 10/9c, Va­ri­ety has learned. The eight-episode series, set in 1814, fol­lows James Keziah De­laney (Hardy) as he re­turns to his home­town of Lon­don from Africa af­ter a voyage so long, he’s been pre­sumed dead. James is set to in­herit his fa­ther’s ship­ping em­pire, which sounds like a boon un­til all of the De­laneys’ en­e­mies be­gin scut­tling out of the wood­work and he finds him­self hav­ing to nav­i­gate an in­creas­ingly fraught, com­plex world in order to save his own skin.

FX has also re­leased the first key art for the series: “Taboo” is cre­ated by Steven Knight with Tom Hardy and his fa­ther Chips Hardy, who is also the show’s con­sult­ing pro­ducer. Hardy and Knight had pre­vi­ously worked on Net­flix’s “Peaky Blin­ders” and the film “Locke;” Hardy is com­ing off an Os­car nod for “The Revenant.” Ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers on “Taboo” 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. The series is di­rected by Kristof­fer Ny­holm (episodes 1-4) and An­ders Engstrom (episodes 5-8). “Taboo” is pro­duced by Scott Free and Hardy Son & Baker for FX and BBC One with Sonar En­ter­tain­ment dis­tribut­ing world­wide out­side the UK.
