Reported by Outsiders - 2012.11.21

The NBC network is currently in negotiations with former House star Hugh Laurie to star in their new action-adventure series Crossbones, from Neil Cross and feature producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. Laurie would play the the notorious English pirate Blackbeard and would be able to use his normal British accent instead of his fake accent used in House.

'The 10-episode Crossbones is set in 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where the diabolical pirate Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard (Laurie), reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. Part shantytown, part marauderís paradise, this is a place like no other on earth ó and a mounting threat to international commerce.'
