Black Sails, Starz‘s upcoming pirate adventure series executive produced by Michael Bay, will debut next January. (It had been targeted for 2014.) NBC is yet to set a premiere date for its pirate series Crossbones starring John Malkovich. Starz also has released key art and two more teasers (watch one below) for the eight-episode drama, which 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). The first Black Sails trailer was released last month.
