Jack Sparrow, the role that filmstar Johnny Depp played in the Pirates movies, will once again be the main character of the TV series.

However, the boob tube audience will get to see a young Jack Sparrow, and changes in his life that led him to become a pirate.

"The idea is that we focus on a much younger Jack Sparrow and show fans how he became a famous pirate,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling British newspaper The Daily Star.

Sources have also revealed that the popularity that the film series earned on the back of spin-offs like toys, video games, and books were the key factor behind the concept of a programme based on it.

"The film has been such a success with spin-offs such as toys and video games and books, it only seems right to do a TV series," said a source.

The source has also hinted that several high profile celebrities may lend their voices for the series.

"Since the film attracted guests like of Keith Richards, you can imagine the stars who will want to pop up in the television show," the source said.
