Starz has released the first 90-second trailer for their new pirate drama BLACK SAILS. The 8-episode first season airs next year.
Flint, the most brilliant and feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name of John Silver, who has stolen a map to a Spanish Treasure galleon that Flint is after. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight against the British Royal Navy 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.
Featuring Luke Arnold, Toby Stephens, Zach McGowan, Hannah New, Jessica Parker Kennedy.
