Here is a first-look trailer for Black Sails, Starz‘s upcoming pirate adventure series executive produced by Michael Bay, which is slated to air next year. The eight-episode drama takes place 20 years before the events in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and chronicles the tales of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his men, including young John Silver (Luke Arnold). Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, most notorious criminal haven of its day — a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers. Co-starring in the series, created by Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, are Zack McGowan, Hannah New and Jessica Parker Kennedy.
