Paramount Network has debuted the trailer for their new six-part event series Waco, premiering January 24, 2018 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. Check out the Waco trailer below!

With an all-star cast including Michael Shannon, Taylor Kitsch, John Leguizamo, Andrea Riseborough, Rory Culkin, Melissa Benoist, Paul Sparks, Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim, and Julia Garner, Waco is a compelling six-part scripted event series based on the controversial and harrowing true story of the 1993 standoff between the FBI, ATF and David Koresh’s spiritual sect in Waco, TX that resulted in a deadly shootout and fire.

In February, 1993, the eyes of the world converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community located just outside Waco, TX. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) had just conducted a massive raid on David Koresh and his followers, known as the Branch Davidians. After what became the longest gun battle in U.S. law enforcement history, four ATF agents and six civilians were dead and dozens more were wounded. A 51-day standoff ensued, and the conflict ended after an FBI assault led to a fire that engulfed Mount Carmel, killing 76 men, women, and children.

What precipitated the ATF raid, and what transpired over the ensuing standoff, remains one of the most misunderstood stories in American history. Based on two biographies, A Place Called Waco, by Branch Davidian David Thibodeau, one of the nine survivors of the final fire on April 19, 1993, and Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator, written by the FBI’s Head of Crisis Negotiation Unit Gary Noesner, the six-part scripted series Waco will forever change the way the dramatic siege will be viewed. A quarter century after this seminal moment in American history, Paramount Network will chronicle this true story told from several perspectives of those who were intimately involved.

Waco is written by John Erick Dowdle (Eps. 1,2 & 6), Drew Dowdle (Eps. 1,2 & 6), Salvatore Stabile (Eps. 3 & 5) and Sarah Nicole Jones (Ep. 4), and directed by John Erick Dowdle (Eps. 1-3 & 6) and Dennie Gordon (Eps. 4 & 5). The series is executive produced by John Erick Dowdle, Drew Dowdle, Salvatore Stabile, Michael Shannon and Taylor Kitsch.
