BBC picks up Our Flag Means Death

The BBC has announced it will premiere comedy series Our Flag Means Death on iPlayer in early 2023.

The show is loosely based on the true adventures of 18th-century would-be pirate, Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby).

After trading in the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede becomes captain of the pirate ship Revenge. Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede’s fortunes change after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard (Taika Waititi), history’s greatest pirate.

The show has already aired in the United States where it has gained a cult following.
