Crossbones premieres tonight!

The long awaited NBC series, that started with a rumor back in 2011, is finally going to premiere with the first episode tonight, Friday, May 30 at 10/9c ! We will see John Malkovich as Blackbeard, who stole the logitude chronometer, a device that supposedly has the ability to change  the world,  from HMS Petrel. The man in charge of making sure that the pirates don’t get their hands on the device is Tom Lowe, a spy working as the ship’s surgeon.

The series was created and written by Neil Cross, who created the British series “Luther” and who has written for “Doctor Who.” NBC originally planned it as a mid-season show but pushed it back to the summer, which is in some ways a better fit, except for the fact that it will air at the end of the night on Fridays, which means it will have a tough time finding an audience without time-shifting.

Currently the show is very hyped and anticipated and how will John Malkovich fit into the role of Blackbeard we will see tonight.

Check back after the episode for a recap and a summary, including pictures, video snipets and other goodies and news.
