HBO Max revealed the following about the plot of the series:
“The Max Original comedy series OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH debuts with three episodes THURSDAY, MARCH 3 on HBO Max. The ten-episode season, from creator David Jenkins and Emmy®-nominated executive producer Taika Waititi, continues with three episodes March 10, two episodes on March 17, and concludes with two episodes on March 24.
The unique new comedy is (very) loosely based on the true adventures of 18th century would-be pirate, Stede Bonnet, played by Rhys Darby. After trading in the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede becomes captain of the pirate ship Revenge. Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede’s fortunes change after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard, played by Waititi. Stede and crew attempt to get their ship together and survive life on the high seas.”
