Featuring buff dudes, hot women (OMG TWO OF THEM KISS), heavy swordplay and heaving bodices, this looks nearly like a Harlequin Romance book cover -- but with more explosions. The eight-episode first season will be set two decades before the events of the classic novel “Treasure Island,” following Captain Flint and his men who fight for survival on the dangerous New Providence Island. So maybe this will be "Pirates Of The Caribbean" but for adults? As anyone who watches Starz's "Magic City" knows, the cable network sure does love their nudity, but this looks just as cartoony as the Johnny Depp movies.
Neil Marshall directed the pilot, and the series will set sail (ha) in 2014. Watch below. [Vulture]
