TV show description:
This action drama is set in the year 1729 and takes place on the secret island of Santa Compana. Barbarous pirate Edward “Blackbeard” Teach (John Malkovich) reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreants.

Selima El Sharad (Yasmine Al Massri) is Blackbeard’s love interest and intellectual equal as they rule the island of pirates. Part shantytown, part utopia, and part marauder’s paradise, this is a place like no other.

Blackbeard has designs on the longitude chronometer, an invention that will change the world. During a massive attack on an English vessel, his most trusted pirates attempt to steal the device.

But on board is Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle), an English spy working undercover as ship’s surgeon. Lowe’s mission is to prevent the chronometer from falling into the hands of pirates — and to assassinate Blackbeard, should the opportunity arise.

Taken as prisoner to Santa Compana, Lowe must find a way to reassemble the precious chronometer, all while trying to uncover Blackbeard’s master plan. It’s a plan that includes a greater threat to the English throne than merely pirates.

Other characters include Kate Balfour (Claire Foy), Charlie Rider (David Hoflin), Nenna Ajanlekoko (Tracy Ifeachor), and Tim Fletch (Chris Perfetti).

Crossbones is a exciting, on the edge of your seat TV series that has I all: suspense, intrigue, drama, romance, and it should continue to delight us viewers. I hope it returns. I love the show!

Wow! What an awesome new show!!! I have been a fan of the Pirates of The Caribean movies, and this is a great refreshing period adventure/drama and about one of histories most notable pirates. What a great template to create a seasonale series!!! I am very much looking forward to the season finale!!! I hope there is a second season!! Bravo NBC!!!


Mary August 1, 2014 at 11:01 am

This series is so very good! It is written well, the characters are interesting, and the plot is outstanding. If this was a book, I would not want it to end. I feel the same way about this series.
There are so many TV series hat “dumb down” the audience; this is not one of them. Crossbones makes the viewer think; it grabs the viewer.
Please don’t cancel this series. Thank you.


Mikki August 1, 2014 at 8:13 am

LOVE LOVE LOVE-well researched and acting is phenomenal….please season two!!!!


Linda August 1, 2014 at 7:40 pm

I find this show exciting and it keeps you guessing with the twists and turns it has in it. I started watching it and then got the rest of my family watching it. Please renew this show! It is worth the time.

When this show started I thought “yeah finally
Something new and different” and that has been
Exactly what it’s been. I’m sick of (and don’t watch)
Reality shows and comedy shows that are
More dirty than funny. Please don’t cancel!!!

DO NOT CANCEL! I thoroughly enjoy each character and want to see more of their development! It seems that everytime a really good show comes out, the network does not give it a chance and cancels it tooo soon! Especially, NBC. They have had a few good shows in the last couple of years, but never given the chance of second season. (Crossing Borders was another one).

Keep it! Really enjoyed watching this show. Sooooooooooooo sick of nothing fun to watch anymore. Not everyone is into reality tv crap and talent after talent shows. Except for PBS, Masterpiece Theatre and the BBC, American TV is just about useless. There is a place for quality shows, fun shows and good documentaries . They don’t exist anymore. I know more about England’s history, gardens, buildings and people than my home country America. The networks or whomever decides, don’t want to dish out the dough to good actors and producers for quality tv. As long as we continue to pay for crap they will keep serving it to us. Look what happened to A and E, Discovery etc. Even the DYI is just watching a bunch of people throwing things together without teaching the viewers how to do it yourself. American TV is a sorry mess of nothing.
