Hoist the Black Flag
Pirates are the stuff of myth and legend – swashbuckling outlaws who bring murder and mayhem to the high seas. But these rogues are not a Hollywood invention. They are all too real.
The true pirates of the Caribbean struck terror into the world’s most powerful empires, threatened trade, and liberated slaves. These Robin Hoods of the sea changed the course of history by creating their own democratic republic in Nassau. Pirates, and their fight for freedom, are the pioneers of American independence. The Lost Pirate Kingdom tells the legendary exploits of the heroes and villains of this remarkable epoch. This ambitious, six-part drama documentary reveals the squabbling, the greed, the battles, the heroism, the politics, the alliances, and the betrayals of the most flamboyant and ruthless characters in history.
