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).

Perhaps my favorite summer tv show. Better than many, if not most, of the movies people are paying to see. There are no weaknesses with it.
If this show gets cancelled, then either the marketing department didn’t do their job, or the executive who made the decision to cancel it should have his (her) own contract cancelled.

NBC has a great show with Crossbones and should renew it for another season.

My Husband and really love John M. Anyway, and they really pulled this story in a lot of directions keeping the viewer on their toes. It will find a following, you have great characters!

I hope NBC doesn’t cancel crossbones. They have cancelled a lot of top shows this past year for no reason. The y had the support, but NBC kept jumping the shows from one day to another on many of them and no one knew when the shows were going to be televised. That happened with Revolutions…….

Please do not cancel Crossbones.
