Crossbones

Crossbones, the NBC television series starring John Malkovich, screened in the States in May 2014.

Neil is writer and executive producer for the action adventure about the golden age of pirates.

It’s 1729. On the secret island of Santa Compana Edward Teach, better known as the barbarous pirate Blackbeard (John Malkovich), reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreants. Part shantytown, part utopia, part marauder’s paradise, this is a place like no other.

Blackbeard has designs on the Longitude Chronometer, an invention that will change the world. During a massive attack on an English vessel, his most trusted pirates attempt to steal the device. But on board is Tom Lowe, an English spy working undercover as ship’s surgeon. Lowe’s mission is to prevent the Chronometer from falling into the hands of pirates — and to assassinate Blackbeard, should the opportunity arise.

Taken as prisoner to Santa Campana, Lowe must find a way to reassemble the precious chronometer, all while trying to unfold Blackbeard’s master plan — a plan that includes a threat to the English throne even worse than pirates…

From the award-winning creator of “Luther,” Neil Cross, and award-winning executive producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (“Gladiator,” “Men in Black”) comes an extraordinary action adventure where one can never be sure just who is hero and who is villain.
