Michael Bay is producing a Treasure Island prequel series for Starz

Michael Bay and Starz will be unveiling a new television series entitled BLACK SAIL in 2014. The cable network ordered a full season of eight episodes for the pirate drama.

Michael Bay and Starz are going to go together like peanut butter and jelly. They both love three things: boobies, explosions, and action. The network has been the home to series SPARTACUS, TORCHWOOD, BOSS, and MAGIC CITY. All are very different genres but share the common thread of violence and nudity.

BLACK SAIL is being billed as a prequel to Treasure Island and is set twenty years before the book and follows a young John Silver when he joins the ranks of Captain Flint's rollicking band of pirates as they head to a pirate enclave, a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality,

So, much like SPARTACUS is a copy of 300 and MAGIC CITY is a copy of THE SOPRANOS and MAD MEN, I anticipate BLACK SAIL will be PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN with lots of naked ladies.

Extra Tidbit: SPARTACUS: Meh. BOSS: Very good. TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY: Decent. MAGIC CITY: I like it. You can't beat Jewish gangsters.
