Taboo, S1


Encircled by conspiracy, murder, and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery. 

1814. James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy, Mad Max: Fury Road), is 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. 


"Hardy is an extraordinarily charismatic performer," The Telegraph

“ addictive, slow-burn story, and a damn entertaining journey.” Indie Wire

“Hardy gives us such a magnetic central character with Delaney that he alone could carry the drama."  LA Times

“...layers a foundation of adventure, mystery, and solid drama that is ambitious but never boring,” Collider
