For as much as we still miss the days of 'Spartacus,' the many goodies to emerge from the ongoing New York Comic-Con have seen Starz giving rise to two new trailers; not only do we have our best look yet at Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' but also a new full-length trailer for 'Da Vinci's Demons' season 2!
Seeing as pirates tend to take what they want without fear of reproach, it should come as little surprise that Starz's forthcoming 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails' has already pilfered itself a second season, a full five months before the pilot premiere even airs to the general public. Still, will the Michael Bay-produced series live up to its promise?

Pirates may not be perfectly in season these days, but Starz's 'Black Sails' will almost certainly beat NBC's 'Crossbones' to the punch. The pay-cable network has officially set a January 2014 premiere for its Michael Bay-produced series, adapting the early days of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Treasure Island,' but will 'Black Sails' prove to be a bountiful haul, or an empty vessel? Get the latest on Michael Bay's new Starz series inside!
Now that 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' has officially fallen, and 'Da Vinci's Demons' has invented some of Starz' best ratings yet for an original series debut, the network has finally started plundering toward the real treasure ahead. 2014 will see the debut of the Michael Bay-produced pirate drama 'Black Sails,' but will it prove the next great historical epic, or a watered-down mess?

Of all the villains James Bond has faced over the course of his decades-long tenure, did you ever see him go up against classic literary character Captain Flint? Well, you already have! As Starz gears up for production of its Michael Bay-produced 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails,' the talk of the seas is who could fill the boots of the iconic Captain Flint. So when looking for an iconic British villain, why go further than one of 007's fallen foes?
When you think of all the expertly-directed period naval battles we saw on TV this past year, all...one...of them, one specific example comes to mind: 'Game of Thrones' season 2 episode "Blackwater!" Seen as one of the best battle sequences ever put on TV, the episodes direction seems to have caught the attention of Starz and Michael Bay, who've hired the man behind the camera to direct their new 'Treasure Island' prequel 'Black Sails!'
Thank goodness Michael Bay's next project still takes place in the age of gunpowder, otherwise the director's first TV foray would be dreadfully devoid of explosions. But if Michael Bay really is to take to TV for a new Starz series, what classic story might the upcoming 'Black Sails' draw its inspiration from, how will it manage to incorporate giant robots?
