FIRST EVER SCREENING OF THE NEW STARZ PIRATE ADVENTURE "BLACK SAILS" FROM PRODUCER MICHAEL BAY AT COMIC CON 2013 STARTS WAVES OF EXCITEMENT

PLUS, AWARD-WINNING MUSICAL COMPOSER BEAR MCCREARY GIVES AN EPIC PERFORMANCE

San Diego, Calif. - July 19, 2013 - Fans lined up on Thursday, July 18th for an exclusive Comic Con screening of the highly anticipated high-seas STARZ Original drama "Black Sails" from Executive Producer Michael Bay. Series stars Zach McGowan, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Mark Ryan, Hakeem Kae-Kazim and series creators Jonathan Steinberg and Robert Levine were in attendance to welcome fans and introduce the action packed drama for the first time ever. In addition, guests were treated to a performance with series musical composer Bear McCreary which kicked off the special event. "Black Sails" premieres in January 2014 exclusively on STARZ.

"Black Sails" centers on the tales of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his men and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island." Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver (Luke Arnold). Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day - a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

Zach McGowan stars as rival Captain Charles Vane; Toby Schmitz as Rackham, Vane's right hand; Hannah New as Eleanor Guthrie, a determined young woman who runs the smuggling operation on New Providence; Hakeem Kae-Kazim as Mr. Scott, Eleanor's retainer and right hand, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Max, a tortured young prostitute who sees the dark side of New Providence; Mark Ryan as Gates, Captain Flint's Quartermaster and most senior member of his crew, Clara Paget as the beautiful but cold-blooded Anne Bonny and Tom Hopper ("Merlin") as Billy Bones, boatswain of Flint's ship.

"Black Sails" is executive produced by Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, producers on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Nightmare on Elm Street (2009). The series was created by showrunner and executive producer Jonathan Steinberg (creator "Jericho," "Human Target") and co-executive producer Robert Levine ("Touch").
