What a great time in history we live in for television. As recently as eight years ago, reality TV seemed to be most of what was going on on the small screen. Now, scripted television is reigning, and the talent on board only seems to get better and better.

Such is the case with FX’s new miniseries TABOO.

Check out the trailer below!

The eight-episode miniseries is executive produced by acclaimed director Ridley Scott and Academy Award-nominated actor Tom Hardy.

The synopsis is as follows:

“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.”
