The 25th anniversary of the siege on the Branch Davidian complex in Waco, Texas, inspires two documentaries this month, and the first original series on the new Paramount Network. Here is your January 2018 TV premieres calendar.

On Feb. 28, 1993, cult leader David Koresh refused to leave the center when served arrest and search warrants. Four ATF agents and six Davidians were killed in the initial battle that led to a 51-day standoff. On April 19, a fire gutted the center, where Koresh and 70 others later were found dead.

ABC and A&E both present documentaries on the events leading up to and including the siege (others likely will pop up during the coming months).

The Paramount Network, formerly Spike TV, is launching this month and chose “Waco” as its first original scripted series. (See my Emmy Magazine story on the Spike rebranding here.) From John Erick and Drew Dowdle, the limited series stars Taylor Kitsch as Koresh, with “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist as his wife, Rachel, and Michael Shannon as FBI negotiator Gary Noesner. Andrea Riseborough, John Leguizamo, Rory Culkin and Camryn Manheim also star.

“Waco” debuts Jan. 24, but before that Paramount will treat viewers to a live Season 4 premiere of “Lip Sync Battle” on Jan. 18, the official first day of the Spike TV-to-Paramount relaunch.

Other big ticket premieres this month include Showtime’s “The Chi,” TNT’s “The Alienist,” CW’s “Black Lightning,” Amazon Prime’s “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams,” FX’s  “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” Starz’s “Counterpart” and HBO’s “Mosaic.”

Personally, I can’t wait to see (besides many of the above,) Netflix’s premiere of the first two seasons of the German import “Babylon Berlin.” From Tom Tykwer, the series explores the decadent world of 1929-34 Berlin through the eyes of a detective investigating a murder.

The January 2018 TV premieres calendar is extra long because I’ve included the returns of fall shows as well as new and season premieres, some finales, specials and movies. I’ll bold the titles I plan to watch. Happy New Year, and viewing.
