A doc series about salvaged artifacts from the Titanic is in the works.

Vancouver-based producers Infinity Filmed Entertainment Group and Partners in Motion are producing Titanic: Stories From the Deep, which will reveal the stories behind individual objects recovered from the sunken luxury liner’s wreck site over the past 30 years.

The companies have inked a deal with the ship’s steward, Premier Exhibitions, which has recovered, researched and documented more than 5,500 artifacts and organized the touring exhibition “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.” The deal gives producers exclusive access to that collection.

Principal photography is expected to wrap by the end of 2017, but Infinity Films and Partners in Motion are looking to engage broadcasters, coproducers and distributors during the development phase.

This is the chance of a lifetime,” said Shel Piercy, president of Infinity Films, in a statement. “We have a unique opportunity to find our way back to the Titanic and explore the lives of those who were on board thanks to the objects they left behind.”

The British passenger liner RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912, killing more than 1,500 people. Its wreckage was discovered in 1985.
