FX Brings 19th Century London to Television with the Premiere of Taboo

Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott are teaming up to produce Taboo, a new dark and gritty miniseries debuting on FX Networks in January. 

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.

As the show kicks off, FX Networks is giving away three separate secret collections of diamonds worth $3,000 apiece. And you don't have to come back from the dead or risk life and limb in order to snag them, either. Learn more and enter the giveaway here.

You can also follow along with the contest and show on social media using the hashtag #TabooFX. Winter TV shows are the perfect way to keep warm during the icy months, and the intrigue of Delaney – both his past and future – should prove to be gripping to all audience members. 

Taboo is intended for adults 21 and up. It premieres on FX Networks on January 10.
