The British broadcaster said Thursday the five-part drama is about what happens to the crew of an oceanographic submarine when they are stranded with no power and little oxygen after an undersea mishap. The miniseries is slated to air next year.
"'The Deep' will offer a breathtaking, high-octane viewing experience, mixing non-stop jeopardy with a thrilling narrative drama from the headlines," said Greg Brenman, head of drama at Tiger Aspect Productions, which is producing the program. "It is testament to Simon Donald's gripping and expertly-crafted script that we have attracted such distinguished and prominent names to this series."
