BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
At New York Comic Con, Starz debuted a new trailer for its pirate drama Black Sails and the first trailer for the second season of Da Vinci’s Demons.
Executive produced by Michael Bay and created by Jon Steinberg (Jericho, Human Target) and Robert Levine (Touch), Black Sails centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men, and takes place two decades before the events of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) stars as Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, who takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of the notorious criminal haven New Providence Island. Black Sails already has been renewed for a second season.
Created by David S. Goyer, Da Vinci’s Demons enters its second season with Florence in chaos following the Pazzi conspiracy, and Leonardo da Vinci (Tom Riley) must defend the city against the forces of Rome — all the while continuing his quest for the fabled Book of Leaves. For some reason, embedding is disabled on the Da Vinci’s Demons trailer, so you’ll have to watch it on YouTube.
