Today Starz released an all new trailer of its hotly anticipated drama, Black Sails at New York Comic-Con 2013. Black Sails is a STARZ Original series from executive producer Michael Bay premiering on Starz in January 2014.
The eight-episode Season 1 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 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.
