And Starz is no exception: check out this trailer which previews all their upcoming original programming!

The shows seen here are:

Black Sails - A historical pirate drama produced by Michael Bay. A group of 18th century mutineers are outcast by every civilized nation, and in turn declare a "war against the world".

Power - A show following nightclub owner James St. Patrick, nicknamed Ghost. He is a major player in New York's drug trade, and faces tough consequences when he decides he wants to go legit.

Da Vinci's Demons - Set in renaissance Italy, this show follows genius polymath Leonardo Da Vinci as he engaged in corrupt power struggles with the Medici family and seeks a mysterious "Book of Leaves".

Outlander - Based on the Outlander novels, this show sees a woman cast back in time to 18th century Scotland. She meets the dashing hero Jamie Fraser, and begins a freewheeling adventure across time.
