Hugh Laurie In Talks To Star In NBC Pirate Drama Series ‘Crossbones’

DL: In what would bre a major casting coup for NBC, the network is in negotiations with former House star Hugh Laurie to topline new action-adventure series Crossbones, from Luther creator Neil Cross and feature producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. Unlike House, where Brit Laurie played an American, he would be able to use his normal British accent in Crossbones as he plays the notorious English pirate Blackbeard. (Crossbones, Hugh Laurie, TV)

British accent Hugh... now that will be something new. Not really sure about the series though if it doesn't have a significant budget may not turn out good.

It sounds like an expensive project, but nothing seems to ever last on NBC.
