Exclusive Black Sails: Season One Clip Explores Pirate Fashion


Starz is bringing the first season of its edgy pirate drama Black Sails to Blu-Ray and DVD on January 6th next year, ahead of the show’s second season premiere on January 24th, and in preparation for the release, We Got This Covered is pleased to exclusively debut one of the bonus features that will be included on both releases.

Titled “Dressed to Kill,” the clip packs a lot of information about costuming for the series into a brief two minutes. Given the massive scale of the show, it’s fascinating to get a sneak peek into all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.

If that clip has piqued your interest, as it did ours, here’s more about the Black Sails: Season One release, courtesy of Starz. Look for it in stores early next year.

“The Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean is at its apex. The former British colony of New Providence Island is now lawless territory, controlled by a few dozen of the most notorious pirate captains in history. The most feared among them is Captain Flint (Toby Stephens). As the British Navy returns to these waters, and the threat of extinction looms, another side of Flint emerges. A man driven by deep, complicated, even romantic motives. He will ally himself with the beautiful Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New), daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who turns the pirates’ loot into profits. Together, they forge a plan to hunt the ultimate prize, and by winning it, stave off reclamation of their home by a resurgent empire.

Arrayed against them are a series of opponents: rival captains, jealous of Flint’s power; Eleanor’s father, whose ambitions for the island conflict with his daughter’s; and a young sailor, recently recruited onto Flint’s crew, who will somehow manage to constantly undermine his captain’s agenda. His name is John Silver (Luke Arnold). The second season of “Black Sails” will begin airing January 24th, 2015 exclusively on STARZ.”
