This be a documentary-based reality show about The MacKay Pirate Family, Golden Age pirates living in modern times, and their pirate mates. Unlike their raping and pillaging ancestors, these modern-day pirates are focused on giving back via art, entertainment, culture, charity, and living history. Icarus A&E's most recent reality creation, Knights of Mayhem, will air on National Geographic in Fall 2011.
A PIRATE'S LIFE will highlight the exploding sub-culture of pirate reenactment enthusiasts through the day to day lives of “The MacKay Pirate Family” and the community they’re a part of which is made up of talented swordsmen, marksmen, sailors, artisans, artists and musicians. We’ll prominently feature many of these fine Rogues who, like the MacKays, actually make their living from the pirate life and are focused on giving back to their communities through art, entertainment, culture, charity, and living history.
