"Black Sails," the pirate drama from executive producer Michael Bay, will premiere on Jan. 25.

Although it is still two months from the premiere of the eight-episode first season, Starz has enough faith in it that production on a greenlighted second season begins this month in Cape Town, South Africa.

Toby Stephens stars as Capt. Flint, who takes on a brash young crew member named John Silver (Luke Arnold).

On the set: movies and TV

That's right. This series is a prequel to the Robert Louis Stevenson classic "Treasure Island."
