Watch Black Sails

Created under the guidance of renowned executive producer Michael Bay, Black Sails is a television show designed to depict a grittier, true-to-life version of the often exaggerated tales surrounding the rise and fall of pirates during their historical heyday. Though swashbuckling and cannon fire have their place in the show, the main focus is in showing the less pleasant side of life as a pirate.

Set in the year 1715, the series follows the pirate Captain Flint as he battles against enemies both aboard his ship and off it. Within his own ranks, Captain Flint must struggle to keep his crew happy and thwart the plans potentially mutinous crew members. On the seas, he must battle rival pirates and even the might of the British Navy. All the while, Flint seeks out the ultimate prize, fighting against the impending extinction of the pirate way of life and desperate to protect New Providence Island, a notorious haven for the less savory denizens of the sea.
