STARZ Sneak Peek Screening of “Black Sails” at Comic-Con

If you are going to San Diego Comi-Con make sure you take time to check out the new pilot “Black Sails” from Starz.  The show is from executive producer Michael Bay (Transformers) and was created by showrunner and executive producer Jonathan Steinberg (creator “Jericho,” “Human Target”) and co-executive producer Robert Levine (“Touch”).  Its a pirate adventure that centers on the tales of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) 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 (Luke Arnold). 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.

The pilot will be screened on Thursday, July 18th.  Time and place TBD. Black Sails
