Spartacus may have come to an end, yes complete end,  but the network behind the gritty, brutal and adult-centered hit TV show do believe that there is still more room for such content. This time round, instead of sand, battle arenas and battles, we have grimy sailors, pirates, the open blue sea and wooden vast ships. Behold, Black Sails

Courtesy of Screenrant, here’s the official show summary from Starz: “The eight-episode first season of the pirate adventure centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men, and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island. Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) stars as 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.

This show premieres next year, no set date as of yet although you should note it’s officially Michael Bay’s first time anywhere near a TV show in official capacity.  No he isnt directing, but he is the Executive Producer…
