'Black Sails' tops lineup: January 2014 programming round up for all STARZ channels

This gritty drama transpires during the golden age of piracy; New Providence Island is a lawless territory, controlled by history’s most notorious pirate captains including the most notorious and feared of all, Captain Flint.

Tune in alert for the January 2014 programming round up for all STARZ channels.

The highly anticipated STARZ Original series “Black Sails” will premiere Saturday January 25th, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT.

“Black Sails” is executive produced by Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. The series was created by showrunner and executive producer Jonathan Steinberg (creator “Jericho,” “Human Target”) and co-executive producer Robert Levine (“Touch”).

This gritty drama transpires during the golden age of piracy; New Providence Island is a lawless territory, controlled by history’s most notorious pirate captains including the most notorious and feared of all, Captain Flint.

It is a world teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and debauchery, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality. “Black Sails” stars Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) as Captain Flint, Hannah New (“El Tiempo Entre Costuras”) as Eleanor Guthrie, Zach McGowan (“Shameless”) as Captain Charles Vane, Luke Arnold (“McLeod’s Daughters) as John Silver, and Jessica Parker Kennedy (“The Secret Circle”) as Max.

Hit series franchise “Spartacus” will continue on STARZ with a full series replay of the extended Blu-ray version on Saturday nights at 9pm ET/PT, this month starting with the second episode of “Spartacus: War of the Damned,” starring Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, and Dustin Clare. Fans will experience all of the blood-soaked action, villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, as the tale of Spartacus ends in epic fashion.

The STARZ Friday Night Features include Iron Man 3 starring Golden Globe Award® winner Robert Downey Jr. and Academy Award® winner Gwyneth Paltrow in an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution as Tony Stark’s world is torn apart by the formidable terrorist called the Mandarin; and the American apocalyptic comedy film This Is The End with all-star cast starring Academy Award® nominees James Franco and Jonah Hill, alongside Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson. Additional Friday Night Features include the science fiction action adventure film After Earth starring Academy Award® nominee Will Smith and son Jayden Smith; Jayne Mansfield’s Car, a film set in 1969 Alabama about the reunion of two very different families after the death of a clan’s estranged wife and mother starring Golden Globe Award® winners Tippi Hedren, Kevin Bacon and John Hurt and Academy Award® winners Billy Bob Thornton and Robert Duvall; and the science fiction horror film The Colony starring Kevin Zegers, Laurence Fishburne, and Bill Paxton.

STARZ IN BLACK will focus on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with two documentaries about his life, STAND and MLK: A Call to Conscience. STARZ IN BLACK will continue with the hip hop music insider series, “Music Revolution,” featuring artist information, music videos and intimate interviews from some of the top names in music, on Wednesdays in January at 10pm. “Music Revolution” is followed immediately by the weekly comedy showcase featuring the best up and coming talent, “StaannDup!,” at 10:30pm, featuring hosts Donnell Rawlings, Leo Flowers, and Doug Williams. Continue to enjoy the Starz Original series “Spartacus: Vengeance” and “The White Queen” Mondays and Wednesdays on STARZ EDGE.
