The only light in the badlands known as Saturday night television is the SyFy Channel’s mostly terrible, but campy Saturday Night Movies. Tonight (Saturday, May 5th) they debut their latest, a four hour retailing of the Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic, Treasure Island.
Michael bay is producing Black Sails, a prequel to Treasure Island, for Starz. Beginning twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic swashbuckler, Black Sails is expected to premiere in 2014.
