Mumbai: Lionsgate Play is all set to premiere two long-awaited series Little Birds and Black Sails exclusively this February. While Little birds is a drama series for the melodramatic hearts, Black Sails is for the action-adventure seekers.
Set in 1955 in the town of Tangier, Little Birds is an adaptation of Anais Nin’s infamous short story collection.

Starring Toby Stephens as Captain Flint, Black Sails is a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson classic, “Treasure Island”. A pirate adventure, the show is set in 1715 and centers around Captain Flint, a pirate who is known far and wide for his brilliance and sharp wit in the Golden Ages. What follows is action-filled escapades of Flint with his fellow pirates, as they navigate their way through the seas. With an 8.2/10 on IMDB, and two Emmy Awards in its pocket, Black Sails has gathered a massive fan-base worldwide! So, if you too have felt trapped at home this past year, make your way to the sea with Captain Flint and his band of pirates, as they jump from adventure to adventure, while untangling the mysterious lives that pirates live.
