The brand new pirate comedy series, Our Flag Means Death, starring Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi, will premiere on Binge later this year with the first look teaser released today.

The ten episode series is based loosely on the true adventures of Stede Bonnet (Darby), a pampered aristocrat who abandoned his life of privilege to become a pirate. Academy Award winner Waititi will play Blackbeard, history’s most feared and revered pirate.

Additionally, the ensemble cast includes Ewen Bremmer, David Fane, Nathan Foad, Joel Fry, Samson Kayo, Guz Khan, Rory Kinnear, Matt Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O’Neill and Vico Ortiz.

The comedy hails from writer, showrunner, and executive producer David Jenkins. Garrett Basch and Dan Halsted also serve as executive producers along with Waititi, who will direct the pilot as well in addition to playing Blackbeard.

Our Flag Means Death premieres on Binge in March, 2022.
