Black Sails arrives in the UK on HISTORY tonight and we’ve got some sneak peek clips to whet your appetite.
A prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s world-famous novel, Treasure Island, Black Sails is a bold and brutal drama set in the cut-throat golden age of eighteenth century piracy.
Following Stevenson’s infamous and universally-feared pirate, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), the series sees the criminals of the sea fight tooth and nail for the survival of New Providence Island: a debauched paradise controlled by the world’s most disreputable marauders. Teeming with prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, New Providence Island is a home from home for outlaw pirates.
Black Sails stars Tom Hopper as Billy Bones, Toby Stephens as Captain Flint, Mark Ryan as Gates and Luke Arnold as John Silver. The cast also includes Hannah New, Jessica Parker Kennedy and Zach McGowan).
