New Zealand actor Rhys Darby (Wrecked, Flight of the Conchords) stars in Our Flag Means Death as 18th-century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet. Based (very) loosely on Stede’s real-life adventures, the comedy sees Stede trading in his seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer. As captain of the pirate ship Revenge, he struggles to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew. However, his fortunes change after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard, and Stede and crew attempt to get their ship together and survive life on the high seas.

Our Flag Means Death, a Max Original, premieres with its first three episodes on Thursday, March 3, exclusively on HBO Max. The ten-episode season continues with three episodes on March 10 and two episodes on March 17, concluding with two episodes on March 24.

Costars in the ensemble cast include Nathan Foad (Bloods), Samson Kayo (Bloods), Vico Ortiz (The Sex Lives of College Girls), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting), Joel Fry (Game of Thrones), Matthew Maher (Captain Marvel), Kristian Nairn (Game of Thrones), Con O’Neill (Chernobyl), Guz Khan (Man Like Mobeen), David Fane (800 Words), Rory Kinnear (Years and Years), Samba Schutte (Sunnyside), Nat Faxon (The Descendants), Fred Armisen (Portlandia), and Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live).

The series is created by David Jenkins (People of Earth) and Oscar® winner and Emmy® nominee Taika Waititi (Wellington Paranormal, What We Do in the Shadows), the latter of whom costars as Blackbeard, directs the pilot, and executive produces the series alongside showrunner David Jenkins, Emmy®-nominated producer Garrett Basch, and Dan Halsted.
