Barry Tarberry, a notoriously greedy, womanizing, corrupt, blond NYC businessman on the run from U.S. authorities, buys a castle in a fictional Caribbean island nation run by a flashy dictator whom he bribes to get an asylum. The castle turns out to be haunted by the legendary pirate Black Jack Savage who explains to Barry that if he can help him save 100 lives, they might both achieve redemption and avoid going to hell for their sins. Their first mission is to bust a local crime ring and rescue a female activist that Barry is attracted to while also dealing with two sleazy bondsmen and demons from hell who are after Savage. Barry also recruits a tech and weapons expert, Logan 'FX' Murphy, to help them in their task. Some actors from the show's pilot, including the actor playing Black Jack Savage himself, were recast for episode two and the rest of the series.
