It’s soon to be a pirate’s life for Bay!
Film producer/director Michael Bay will be hitting up TV for the very first time with a brand new series centered around PIRATES!!!
The series will be a Treasure Island prequel called Black Sails and will air eight episodes in 2014!!
The show is brought to us by Jericho creator Jon Steinberg and Bay will be serving as the series’ executive producer!!
Of his first TV venture, Bay said:
"I'm excited to branch out into television, especially doing a longform series for Starz, a network known for supporting cutting-edge programming.”
Black Sails will take viewers into the lives of pirate Captain Flint and his crew member, John Silver, as they fight against the high seas for their treasured paradise island!
…so can Jack Sparrow maybe make an appearance, perhaps??? LOLz!
Production is set to begin later this year and will be filmed in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa!
Step aside, all you vamps! We are SO ready for a show full of seksi pirates!!!!
