Starz has released a new trailer for its upcoming original series Black Sails from executive producer Michael Bay that shows some more locations and action. Black Sails takes place twenty years before Treasure Island and it looks like it is going to give us the gritty dark side of being a pirate, something Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean couldn’t do. Black Sails really looks like it is in the vein of HBO’s Deadwood and could be a hit for a few seasons. Black Sails stars Luke Arnold, Hannah New, Toby Schmitz, Clara Paget, Mark Ryan, Hakeem Kae-Kazim and Toby Stephens as Captain Flint.
Plot Synopsis: 1715. The Golden Age of Piracy. New Providence is a lawless island, controlled by history’s most notorious pirate captains. The most feared – CAPTAIN FLINT.
