Airdate: Waco

Six part US drama Waco will have a broadcast on SBS from next week (it dropped at SBS on Demand last week).

The dramatisation of incidents in Texas in 1993 stars Michael Shannon, Melissa Benoist, Taylor Kitsch, and John Leguizamo.

This was produced for the Paramount Network and received mixed reviews after a January debut.

It kicks off with a double episode.

Waco explores the 51-day 1993 standoff between the FBI, the ATF, and David Koresh’s religious faction, the Branch Davidians, in Waco, Texas, that culminated in a fatal fire. The six episode series follows the events leading up to the tragic standoff at Waco, offering perspectives from both sides of the dispute.

8:30pm Thursday November 15 on SBS.
