Do you find your life lacking some pirate action? I mean, it has been a year or so since the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie. If you’re jonesing for something pirate, maybe Starz new series is up your ally. Check out the trailer for yourself below:
“Black Sails” is a re-imaging of the early years of the fictional pirate character from Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale “Treasure Island”. “Sails” was produced / created by Robert Levine (Touch) and Jon Steinberg (Jericho) along with Mr. Explosion himself, Michael Bay.
Below you’ll find the official synopsis of the show:
“The highly anticipated pirate adventure, Black Sails, centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.” Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day — a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.”
“Black Sails” is set to premiere on Starz sometime in January 2014. What are your thoughts of the show? Let us know in the comment area below.
