Our Flag Means Death trailer brings comedy to the high seas

The life of a pirate isn’t for everyone, but that’s not something that Stede Bonnet is willing to accept in HBO Max‘s new original comedy series Our Flag Means Death. In the first trailer for the show, Rhys Darby steps into the role of Stede, who was a real person in the 18th century. Stede wasn’t satisfied with the life of a gentleman, so he decided to become a pirate. The biggest problem is Stede has no idea how to be a good pirate, and he still clings to certain aspects of his former life.

Taika Waititi co-headlines the series as Captain Blackbeard, and the trailer also shows Blackbeard’s introduction to Stede. Historically, the two men did have a short friendship, which led to Blackbeard taking over Stede’s ship with his blessing. That appears to be the case here as well, but it remains to be seen if their partnership will work out better on the show than it did in reality.

Rabbit Hole cast and creators discuss their new espionage Paramount+ series
Kiefer Sutherland and Meta Golding stand next to each other in Rabbit Hole.

For John Weir (The Contractor's Kiefer Sutherland), deception is a strength, not a weakness. Weir specializes in corporate espionage, as he and his team manipulate stocks, create fake news stories, and make the lives of the rich a living nightmare for the group's financial gain. Unlike the intense Jack Bauer on 24 and the noble Tom Kirkman on Designated Survivor, Sutherland's Weir in Rabbit Hole is cocky, slick, and brilliant as he stays ten steps ahead of his opponents.

When he's suddenly accused of murders he didn't commit, Weir goes on the run and uses a team of unlikely allies to prove his innocence and search for the truth. Aside from Sutherland, the ensemble features Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Meta Golding (Empire), Enid Graham (Mare of Easttown), Walt Klink (Arctic Circle), and Rob Yang (The Menu). Created by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (This Is Us), Rabbit Hole is an espionage thriller that spotlights the power of disinformation and its ability to control the population.
