A deadly real-world siege is the focus of a new drama series that’s in the works for TV. Spike TV announced that it has landed the event series “Waco” from Weinstein Television.
The six-part series is based on the infamous FBI siege of the Branch Davidians headquarters in Waco, Texas, in 1993.
The project goes into production next spring, with Michael Shannon and Taylor Kitsch to star.
“‘Waco’ will forever change the way the dramatic siege will be viewed,” Spike TV said in an announcement. “The landmark series will be the definitive untold story exploring the true life details leading up to and chronicling the 51- day siege between the FBI, AFT and David Koresh’s spiritual sect, The Branch Davidians.”
