From Luther creator Neil Cross, this drama is set in 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, where the notorious pirate Blackbeard leads a nation of thieves and outlaws. To regain control, a trained undercover assassin named Tom Lowe is sent to take down Blackbeard, but Lowe soon becomes an admirer of the swashbuckler's, charisma, intelligence and political ideals. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (Gladiator, Men In Black) will executive-produce along with Three Rivers' Ted Gold and Cross.


It's got Pirates so it's got to be good! Right?....

If you like Luther maybe?

Still, doesn't mean he'll actually be writing. And the casting may be amazing.

Like the sound of it. Hopefully not like that Eddie Izzard Treause Island show.. that looked fairly shite.

So we have this, Black Sails and Port Royal.

Pirates are the new Vampires.
