‘Black Sails’ season 1, episode 1:‘I’ premieres Saturday on Starz.
Coming up on in the show debut, pirate Captain Flint faces a mutiny from his own crew; John Silver hides something of great value; Eleanor keeps order on New Providence as the Royal Navy grows stronger.
Starz describes the show as follows:
“Set up as a twenty-year prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic book Treasure Island, Black Sails will follow the adventures of cutthroat corsair Captain Flint and his crew of brutal buccaneers, whose plundering ways have led them to the brink of extinction. Flint’s fight for survival forces him to seek sanctuary on the debauched pirate paradise New Providence Island, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and stunning brutality. On the journey, Flint will take on a young, fast-talking addition to his crew — one, John Silver.”
‘Black Sails’ season 1, episode 1 airs Jan. 25 at 9 p.m. EST, 8 p.m. CST on Starz.
