'Black Sails' Hakeem Kae-Kazim: Mr. Scott has 'a sense of self' that's different from other former slaves

8 February 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

February is Black History Month and as such, Zap2it has an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from "Black Sails," where actor Hakeem Kae-Kazim discusses the role that Africans played in the golden age of piracy.

"Slave ships were raided by these pirate ships, and so slaves on these ships would have a choice -- they could either join the pirates or get thrown overboard," says Kae-Kazim. "They were judged purely on their talent and effectiveness as sailors, not on the color of their skin. The only option for them was either slavery or this form of freedom, so they would fight hard and be braver than any of the other pirates."

Kae-Kazim's character of Mr. Scott walks an interesting line between the pirate world and the wealthier world of the Guthries, the family that runs New Providence. He says because of that, Mr. Scott has a different sense of self than »

Black Sails, Ep. 1.02: “II.” navigates a sea of characters

3 February 2014 1:05 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Black Sails, Season 1: Episode 2 – “II.”

Written by Jonathan E. Steinberg & Robert Levine

Directed by Sam Miller

Airs Saturday nights at 9 on Starz

Following last week’s premiere of Black Sails, it was clear that the toughest obstacle the series was going to face in its first season was making such a large group of characters interesting enough that we have stakes in the landlocked portions of episodes. “II.” largely begins to address some of those concerns, and while there is still a lot of work to be done with central figures like John Silver and Charles Vane, the rest of the group members are starting to become much more recognizable as characters and not just people who are on the screen.

“II.” begins by focusing on what is currently the love story in Black Sails – the relationship between Hannah New’s Eleanor Guthrie and Jessica Parker Kennedy’s Max. »

'Black Sails' Season 1 episode II: Captain Flint works on Eleanor

31 January 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Check out these sneak peek clips from the next episode of new Starz drama "Black Sails," which kicked things off with a bang last week as several swashbuckling pirates set out to find a whale of a treasure.

Above, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) tells Eleanor (Hannah New) and Mr. Scott (Hakeem Kae-Kazim) a tale from "The Odyssey" about finding peace from the sea, while below, Flint and Eleanor discuss the Spanish galleon that everyone is seeking. She wonders why he'd return to Nassau after capturing such an enormous fortune -- what do you think Flint's reasoning is?

We can also tease for you in episode II that Flint will find a thief amongst his crew members, Rackham will go after a score despite Vane having serious objections and Silver will hide with Max in the brothel.

"Black Sails" airs Saturday nights at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on Starz.

'Black Sails' premiere: Hannah New says Eleanor's sexuality is secondary to her cause

25 January 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Black Sails" premiered Saturday (Jan. 25) on Starz, kicking off a pirate adventure as these sailors of the high seas search for treasure in an elusive Spanish galleon.

But pirates are not all viewers encounter on and around the island of New Providence. Hannah New is Eleanor Guthrie, who basically runs the island and who New says she was excited to play because Eleanor is "a proper ball-breaker."

As viewers will see in the first couple episodes, Eleanor has an on-going relationship with Max (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and there are references to Eleanor's previous relationship with Charles Vane (Zach McGowan). New says that the show hasn't felt the need to define Eleanor's sexuality, though it does play an important role in her life on the island.

"Obviously we define the specific relationship between the two people, but I don't think the show in any way defines sexuality or defines the notion »

'Black Sails' review: All aboard for high-seas adventure

25 January 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Starz is setting sail with a new drama when "Black Sails" launches Saturday (Jan. 25). 

The swashbuckling adventure combines real-life pirates from the 18th century, like Charles Vane (Zach McGowan), Calico John Rackham (Toby Schmitz) and Anne Bonny (Clara Paget) and characters from Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island," like Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and John Silver (Luke Arnold), with new fictional characters like Nassau proprietor Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New) and her right-hand man and woman, Mr. Scott (Hakeem Kae-Kazim) and Max (Jessica Parker Kennedy).

At first glance, the high seas adventure might appear to be more along the lines of former Starz program "Spartacus," which often seemed like a pornographic movie with fighting and a large budget. Like its predecessor, "Black Sails" does not shy away from violence and sex.

But four episodes in, "Black Sails" is actually spinning a cleverly-crafted tale of intrigue, secrets and deceit surrounding a »
