In February 1993, the eyes of the world converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community located just outside of Waco, TX. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) conducted a raid on leader David Koresh (played by Taylor Kitsch) and his devoted 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 siege led to a fire that engulfed the entire Mount Carmel compound, killing 76 men, women, and children. Each side has a story and both will be told like never before in Paramount Network’s new six-part special television event, ‘Waco.’
