Everybody knows Captain Hook is an old man who's creepily obsessed with a young boy — but apparently the origin story of Peter Pan and Hook is much more scandalous than that. Learn more, in the first trailer for Neverland.

Here's another trailer that shows Hook teaching the lost boys how to fight with swords. I don't know about you guys, but I'm really looking forward to the whole scene where Peter Pan stumbles into Hook and Hot Pirate Lady's bedroom mid — well, mid-whatever pirates do naked between the sheets. And yes he is totally having a conversation with a small boy while he and his pirate lady are merely covered in sheets. Dark, gritty, pirate sex, it's got it all! The miniseries, Neverland, is supposed to air on Syfy sometime this year, but there's still no official airdate yet. Here is the official synopsis.

Raised on the streets of turn-of-the century London, orphaned Peter (Rowe) and his pals survive by their fearless wits as cunning young pickpockets. Now, they've been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Ifans) to snatch a priceless-some believe, magical-treasure which transports them to another world. Neverland is a realm of white jungles and legendary mysteries of eternal youth, where unknown friends and enemies snatched from time welcome the new travelers with both excitement and trepidation. These groups include a band of 18th century pirates led by the power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Friel), and the Native American Kaw tribe led by a Holy Man (Trujillo), which has protected the secret of the tree spirits from Bonny and her gang for ages-and that has meant war. But as the fight to save this strange and beautiful world becomes vital, Hook, Peter, and the ragamuffin lost boys consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up-right here in their new home called Neverland.
