About the show:
In February 1993, the ATF conducts a raid on a small religious community near Waco, Texas, beginning a 51-day stand-off between the two sides. The Bureau for Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, better known as the ATF, attempted to raid the Branch Dividians Ranch in Waco, Texas.
The botched first attempt led to dead officers and civilians inside the compound and kicked off a 51-day standoff between the government and the Davidians leader David Koresh.
The six-part miniseries was created by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle. Additionally, John wrote the series with Drew directing and both brothers are executive producers.
