NBC series based on Republic of Pirates to premier May 30

"Crossbones", the NBC drama based on my third book, The Republic of Pirates, finally has its air date.

The series, written by Neil Cross (of BBC's "Luther" fame) and starring John Malkovich as Blackbeard, will premier Friday, May 30, at 10 pm, the network revealed this week.

The book, a history of the Golden Age Pirates, was recently released in the U.K., Australia, and the rest of the commonwealth, and translations are forthcoming in Hungary, Poland, Taiwan, and Brazil. It's also available in Spanish and Danish and, of course, in North America.
