Former "Friday Night Lights" star Taylor Kitsch returns to Texas, this time portraying notorious cult leader David Koresh in the upcoming miniseries "Waco," which also stars two-time Oscar-nominee Michael Shannon as FBI Hostage negotiator Gary Noesner.

Paramount Network (formerly known as Spike TV) has released the first trailer for the highly ambitious 6-part cable drama, which chronicles the 1993 Waco siege. It was a 51-day standoff in Waco, Texas, during which FBI and ATF agents went up against a heavily armed religious compound run by a group called the Branch Davidians, led by a charismatic leader named David Koresh, who convinced his followers that he was the son of God.

In addition to Kitsch and Shannon, the cast also features John Leguizamo, Melissa Benoist, Shea Whigham, Julia Garner, Andrea Riseborough, Camryn Manheim, Paul Sparks, Steven Culp, and Rory Culkin.

Hailing from filmmaking brothers John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle (No Escape, Devil, Quarantine), "Waco" is based on two biographies: "A Place Called Waco" by former Branch Davidian member David Thibodeau and "Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator" by Gary Noesner.

The miniseries will air in January 2018 on the Paramount Network, which is currently known as Spike TV, but will change its title in the new year.
