Villains of All Nations: Pirates TV Series in the Works

If you're looking for pirate adventures beyond those of Captain Jack Sparrow, then this news is for you: British writer/producer Lynda La Plante is adapting Marcus Rediker's book about 17th and 18th Century pirates, Villains of All Nations, into television series for Lionsgate.
“We’ve been hoping to work with Lynda for some time and the stars have finally aligned on this project,” said president of Lionsgate TV Kevin Beggs in a Hollywood Reporter story. “Not only is she a brilliant writer, she happens to have a longtime love and knowledge of the subject matter and we believe she can achieve exactly the kind of ‘Deadwood on the seas’ sensibility we’re looking for.”

La Plante is currently overseeing the U.S. version of her British show Prime Suspect, the American take to star Maria Bello.
