Black Sails to premiere on Machinima a week before Starz’s premiere

Black Sails FINAL Key Art - STARZ

Machinima, one of the most popular YouTube channels for gamers, is teaming up with Starz to give us the premiere episode of Black Sails one week early from its regular premiere on the Starz Network.

Hmmmm, a pirate show premiering earlier on a channel known for catering to gamers. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag comes into mind. (I love pirates, so I don’t mind.) The Machinima premiere date is January 18th on Machinima Prime.

In the meantime, check out the trailer, behind-the-scenes preview, and more below.

Black Sails takes place during the Golden Age of Piracy and is a prequel to the fictional Treasure Island. We’ll get to see a young John Silver (Luke Arnold) working under Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) as they and the crew fight for survival to preserve the pirate paradise, New Providence Island.

The show is created by Jonathan Steinberg (creator Jericho, Human Target), and he’ll be acting as the showrunner and executive producer.
