National Geographic has picked up the documentary Atlantis Rising from Oscar-winning Titanic director James Cameron.
With a team of archaeologists, scientists and historians, Cameron and Emmy-winning filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici (pictured, right) go in search of the lost world of the “Atlantean” civilization. The team draws on clues from the ancient texts Timaeus and Critias, the story source of Atlantis, penned by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato.
Unlike many explorers who go looking for a singular underwater site for the lost city, Atlantis Rising journey’s from Greece to the Atlantic Ocean, exploring multiple locations on air, land and below the sea with the goal of unlocking this timeless mystery.
Atlantis Rising premieres on National Geographic on Sunday, Jan. 29, 9 p.m. ET/PT
