FX Orders Taboo, a New Period Drama Starring Tom Hardy as a "Rogue Adventurer"

Commissioned by the BBC, created by Knight, and based on an original story written by Hardy and his father, Taboo is set in 1813 and follows James Keziah Delaney (Hardy), a "rogue adventurer" who returns home from Africa with 14 "ill-gotten diamonds" in his possession.
