TV show description:
This adventure series takes place in 1715 in the Caribbean. Pirates have been declared enemies of all civilization. Ruthless Captain Flint (Toby Stevens) is feared amongst pirates and is facing threats on all sides.
A former British colony, New Providence Island has become a notorious haven for pirates, prostitutes, and criminals. Richard Guthrie (Sean Cameron Mitchell) and his daughter Eleanor (Hannah New) run a smuggling operation on the island, turning the pirate’s ill-gotten gains into profits.
Captain Flint is so obsessed with finding gold-laden galleon, the Urca de Lima, he almost drives his crew to mutiny. On his side, he has the tough talking Eleanor, his quartermaster Mister Gates (Mark Ryan), and boatswain William “Billy Bones” Manderly (Tom Hoppe).
Arrayed against him are various opponents including Richard Guthrie and rival captain, Vane (Zach McGowen), with his right hand, Rockham (Toby Schmitz). Vane and Eleanor have a sexual history but now, she’s with Max (Jessica Parker Kennedy), a savvy prostitute.
Smooth talker John Silver (Luke Arnold) is a new member of Flint’s crew. He’s hiding an important secret and he uses it to undermine his captain’s agenda at every turn.
