Boiling out of the Texas plains and straight to Paramount Network comes a story Biblical and American and tainted with violence. The six-part Waco television event resurrects David Koresh (Taylor Kitsch), and his Branch Davidians in their 1993 standoff against the federal government.
In this latest trailer, we glimpse the frantic machinations of both Koresh’s cult embedded in their Mount Carmel Center compound and the ATF and FBI preparing to infiltrate it as the tale spirals toward its tragic, inexorable conclusion.
Waco will debut Jan. 24, just six days after Paramount Network launches on Jan. 12. It will join Yellowstone, starring Kevin Costner, American Woman, starring Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari, and a re-imagining of the cult classic Heathers.
Paramount Network will also launch with several hit holdovers from its predecessor Spike, including Ink Master, Lip Sync Battle, Bar Rescue, and Bellator MMA. Additionally, the Melissa McCarthy- and Ben Falcone-produced Nobodies, will move over to Paramount Network from Viacom’s TV Land for its second season.
