A Pirate’s Life is a new docu-based reality TV show about Golden Age Pirates living in modern times! This exciting Series highlights the exploding subculture of pirate reenactment enthusiasts through the day to day lives of “The MacKay Pirate Family” and their pirate mates.
The MacKays are pirate reenactors, artists, artisans and entrepreneurs. These modern-day pirates are focused on giving back via art, entertainment, culture, charity, and living history.
We’ll join Jeff, Rebecca and Wilde MacKay and crew as they sail the high seas on pirate adventures in exotic locales around the world. We’ll watch The MacKay’s and the community they’re a part of, talented swordsmen, marksmen, sailors, artisans, artists & musicians, and we’ll get a personal introduction to the pirate lifestyle. Experiencing true living history: the thrill of sailing tall ships on the high seas, the danger of handling gunpowder, the explosive cannon battles and sword fights, Pirate Parties, and even Mermaids.
We’ll also follow these modern-day pirates home to see how they function in our world, as pirate parents in the suburbs, raising a child in this alternative lifestyle. Following them on seemingly normal activities, shopping, parent /teacher conference, and their struggle to keep their Pirate Businesses afloat during tough economic times.
A Pirate’s Life was created and developed by award-winning, independent film production company Icarus Arts & Entertainment which is best known for feature documentary film work, and has been branching out into docu-based reality TV over the past two years. Icarus A&E’s most recent reality creation, Knights of Mayhem, is currently airing on the National Geographic Network.
