Black Sails TV Series

n January 2014, the Starz Network will present the highly anticipated pirate adventure, Black Sails, centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men and takes place 20 years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island." There be 8 episodes in the first season of this Pirate program.

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.

The executive producer is Michael Bay, who produced Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor. View the Black Sails Trailer, which looks like it should be a pretty good show. There be a special sneak screening at San Diego Comic Con on July 18.

I’m having Post-Pirate depression after the end of the series. It is the main reason that I’ve fallen back in love with a childhood fascination with pirates. I’m old enough to remember “Treasure Island” when Disney did it. Happy to find out you had a part in “Black Sails.” I’d kill for one or two of the Jack Rackham outfits. Also happy that my first pirate hat came from YOU.
