The Republic of Pirates, premiers tomorrow night, and the network's local affiliates here in Maine were kind enough to have me on air tonight to talk about the book, the series, and the relationship between the two.
The show, "207", appears on both WCSH-6 in Portland and its sister station, WLBZ-2, in Bangor. Thanks to Rob Caldwell and his team for having me on.
The series -- "Crossbones" starring John Malkovich as Blackbeard -- has been receiving a bunch of preview attention this week, including these reviews from the San Antonio Express-News, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Kansas City Star and the Orange County Register, plus these features in TV Guide, the Portland Press Herald and Los Angeles Times. The general consensus, as the Chronicle put it, is that it's fun.
Tune in at 10pm Eastern tomorrow night, May 30, and let me know what you think.
