FX has released the first trailer for “Taboo,” a new series that stars Tom Hardy. “Taboo” follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and come back irrevocably changed.

Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa in 1814 to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But when his father’s legacy is revealed to be a poisoned chalice and enemies lurk in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence.

The network teases the show saying, “Encircled by conspiracy, murder, and betrayal – a dark family mystery unfolds in an explosively colourful tale of love and treachery.”

Also appearing in the series are Oona Chaplin, Michael Kelly, Jonathan Pryce and Edward Hogg.
