The eight-episode miniseries centers on an adventurer who returns to England from Africa and is determined to avenge his father’s death. Written by Steven Knight, the writer and director of “Locke” and the creator of the TV series “Peaky Blinders,” the show will premiere on FX in early 2017.

Hardy co-created “Taboo” with his father, Edward “Chips” Hardy, and Knight.

Here’s the official synopsis: Set in 1814, the Taboo miniseries follows James Keziah Delaney (Hardy), 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.
