National Geographic will explore shipwrecks, treasure and sunken cities in the upcoming series Draining the Oceans.
Using advanced underwater scanning systems, scientific data and art digital recreations, the 10-part factual program will look to solve modern and ancient mysteries from beneath the ocean waves.
A copro with the UK’s Mallinson Sadler Productions and Australia’s Electric Pictures, the series will premiere globally later this year on National Geographic.
The China Seas, the Gulf of Mexico, the Mediterranean, the Nile, the Pacific Rim, the Indian Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea are among the sites explored throughout the series.
Putting water’s influence aside, the series aims to explain how vessels sank, how modern tech operates in challenging climates, what ancient geological formations can tell us about life on Earth, where Nazi secrets may reside and why the search for Atlantis is still on.
