Starz’ new pirate action adventure series, Black Sails, pulls into port in 2014. With the series premiere fast approaching, the cable network wants to introduce you to the third pirate in their “Dead or Alive” series teaser videos.
Billy Bones is the boatswain of the pirate ship Walrus, and is key to smooth operations aboard the Walrus, and is widely assumed to be the next quartermaster should anything happen to Gates. Gates is the most senior member of Capt. Flint’s crew, and the current quartermaster aboard the ship. As Bones gets drawn deeper and deeper into Flint’s plans for the future his belief in the righteousness of the pirate cause will be continually tested.
