Gilbert Speaks about the FX Miniseries: Taboo

5 Dec

There is a new show coming to the FX Channel on January 10, 2017. There are several reasons that I want to watch this miniseries: Taboo stars Tom Hardy; the series promises sex, danger and intrigue, but the main reason that I want to see Taboo is because Ridley Scott is one of the producers and I love all of Ridley Scott’s works. What do we know about the show? Find out after the jump.

Plot

Taboo is set in the year 1814 and follows James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy) to the ends of the earth. This journey has led many to believe Delaney long dead, but they are in for a surprise when Delaney returns home to London to inherit his father’s shipping empire. Surrounded by conspiracy, murder and betrayal, Delaney must take control of his father’s legacy while avoiding being killed by his enemies and solving a dark family mystery. This series will have us rethinking what we know about the East India Company

Taboo was created by Steven Knight, Tom Hardy and Chips Hardy. Ridley Scott and Kate Crowe are the executive producers. Directed by Kristoffer Nyholm and Anders Engstrom, the miniseries offers eight episodes and stars Tom Hardy, Oona Chaplin, David Hayman, Michael Kelly and Jonathan Pryce.

Conclusion

Taboo promises its viewers a wild ride and I’ve already bought my ticket. I love adventure and I’m hooked for the entire event.
