“There’s only one thing better than sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll – and that’s pirates,” says Black Sails cast member Zack McGowan in this behind the scenes video from Starz’ upcoming pirate adventure series. Coming this January, the new original series promises to be different than other pirate tale, and the cast – including McGowan, Toby Stephens, Hannah New, and Luke Arnold – explain what sets it apart in this short video.
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. Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, 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.
