STARZ’ Black Sails Debuts New Trailer at New York Comic-Con
“No matter the struggle, no matter the cost, I’m going to make you the princes of the New World.”
Today STARZ released an all new trailer for its hotly anticipated new drama, Black Sails, at New York Comic-Con. This new original series will premiere January 2014 and is produced by Michael Bay (Transformers) and his partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form from Platinum Dunes (Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Even though the series has yet to appear, it has already been renewed for a second season thanks to all the buzz surrounding the show. The series was created by executive producer Jon Steinberg (Human Target) and co-executive producer Robert Levine (Touch).
The eight-episode first season of “Black Sails” centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men, and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.” Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) stars as Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, who 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.
