Anchor Bay Entertainment will be releasing the acclaimed STARZ Original series BLACK SAILS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” on Blu-ray™ + Digital HD with Ultraviolet™ and DVD on January 6th, 2014. The second season of “Black Sails” will begin airing a few weeks after street date on January 24th, 2015, exclusively on STARZ.
“BLACK SAILS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” begins in 1715. The Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean is at its apex. The former British colony of New Providence Island is now lawless territory, controlled by a few dozen of the most notorious pirate captains in history. The most feared among them is Captain Flint (Toby Stephens). As the British Navy returns to these waters, and the threat of extinction looms, another side of Flint emerges. A man driven by deep, complicated, even romantic motives. He will ally himself with the beautiful Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New), daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who turns the pirates’ loot into profits. Together, they forge a plan to hunt the ultimate prize, and by winning it, stave off reclamation of their home by a resurgent empire. Arrayed against them are a series of opponents: rival captains, jealous of Flint’s power; Eleanor’s father, whose ambitions for the island conflict with his daughter’s; and a young sailor, recently recruited onto Flint’s crew, who will somehow manage to constantly undermine his captain’s agenda. His name is John Silver (Luke Arnold).
