NBC has enlisted a rather talented filmmaker to craft the visual style of the upcoming “Blackbeard” series Crossbones. From Luther creator Neil Cross, the new show stars John Malkovich as pirate Edward Teach aka Blackbeard and takes place in 1715 on the island New Providence, where thieves, outlaws, and miscreant sailors are the lay of the land. The network has enlisted 30 Days of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse director David Slade to helm the first episode of Crossbones, which has already been ordered straight-to-series and is thus bypassing the pilot system. The show will premiere on NBC during midseason.
Slade has been doing some excellent work in television as of late, having directed multiple episodes of the first season of NBC’s excellent Hannibal, on which he is also an executive producer. Additionally, Slade is serving as executive producer and directing a few episodes of Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ron Moore’s new Syfy series Helix. On the feature side of things, Slade recently signed on to direct the psychological thriller The Widow.
