HBO Max revealed a new trailer for ‘Our Flag Means Death‘ starring Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi. The series follows the bizarre, larger than life true story of hoity-toity nobleman Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby) who left his upper class, eighteenth-century life behind when he decided to chase his lifelong dream of becoming a pirate, and while we always say “follow your dreams,” the aristocratic man’s decision was an odd one. He traded in his wife and family for a group of dirty, ill-equipped crew members, and together they set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Watch the trailer below.
The series stars Rhys Darby, Taika Waititi, Kristian Nairn, Nathan Foad, Rory Kinnear, David Fane, Joel Fry, Guz Khan, and Fred Armisen. Our Flag Means Death is loosely based on the real-life adventures of Stede Bonnet (Darby), a well-to-do gentleman farmer from a wealthy family who, after undergoing a midlife crisis, elects to leave and become the captain of Revenge, a pirate ship in the early 18th century. The series was created, written, and executive produced by David Jenkins.
Our Flag Means Death release date is not yet announced.
