In “Timecrafters: The Treasure of Pirate’s Cove,” a pirate crew led by the dashing Geoffrey Pistol (Balfour) launches a daring mutiny, stealing away in the night. Captain Lynch (McDowell) awakes to find his first mate gone along with his precious treasure map and vows to chase the mutineers to the gates of Hades. As Pistol navigates a stolen vessel through a treacherous storm, a strange "Time Machine" mechanism below deck is activated and the ship disappears in a flash of swirling, blue energy. The bewildered crew awakes on the shore of the modern-day seaside town Pirate's Cove, where they are mistaken for drunken actors. A group of four kids find the pirate's treasure map and use high-tech gadgetry to decipher its clues, while eluding their parents, including Victoria Dare (Richards), and some unsavory characters lurking in town. When the town's wacky Mayor announces a plan to ditch the town's pirate theme in lieu of a new "Dino-World" moniker the kids really need to find the lost treasure and save their town from the Mayor's devious plans.


“Timecrafters: The Treasure of Pirate’s Cove” is written by Jeffrey Butscher and Chip Fraser, and directed by Rick Spalla (“And the Oscar Goes to….”). Spalla produces with Craig Albrecht (“Wicked Blood”), and Lew Temple who serves as Co-Producer.
