Waco: World Premiere Screening and Discussion, NYC


When: Wednesday, January 24, 2018 @ 6:30PM

Hot Spot: The Paley Center for Media, NYC

Deets: Paramount Network rounded up a blue-chip cast for this six-part “television event” dramatizing the infamous 1993 gun battle between the David Koresh–led Branch Davidians and federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, which left four ATF agents and six civilians dead. The ensuing standoff led to a fifty-one-day FBI siege and a fire that wiped out the Branch’s compound, killing an additional seventy-six men, women, and children. “Almost twenty-five years later, it is likely that most everything you know about this event is a lie,” according to executive producers John Erick and Drew Dowdle. Join us for a preview screening of the first episode, followed by a chat with the cast and producers, plus survivor David Thibodeau, who was inside the compound at the time; and former FBI Chief Negotiator Gary Noesner.

Who You May Spot: Taylor Kitsch, "David Koresh"/Executive Producer; Michael Shannon, "Gary Noesner"/Executive Producer;
