Before Tom Hardy fans see the actor in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” they can check him out in the upcoming miniseries “Taboo.” FX released four new promos to give viewers another sneak peek at the drama premiering early 2017.
Created by Hardy, his father Chips Hardy and Steven Knight, the eight-episode series is set in 1814 and follows James Keziah Delaney (Hardy), an adventurer who returns to London from Africa long after he’s believed to be dead. Wishing to inherit his father’s shipping empire and rebuild his life, he discovers the true nature of their legacy left behind and finds himself facing off against the East India Company.
The four new clips are titled “Little Men,” “The Prestige,” “Evil” and “Dear James,” each taking a look at Hardy and additional cast members.
“I know the evil that you do, because I was once part of it,” says Hardy in one of the teasers.
“Taboo” also co-stars Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, Stephen Graham, Michael Kelly, Jessie Buckley, David Hayman and Tom Hollander, among others.
The first four episodes will be directed by Kristoffer Nyholm and the last four by Anders Engström. Ridley Scott and Kate Crowe for Scott Free, Hardy and Dean Baker for Hardy Son & Baker, and Knight serve as executive producers, with Timothy Bricknell producing.
“Taboo” premieres January 10 on FX. Check out the promos below.
