Discovery-owned cable net Animal Planet is set to premiere The Aquarium later this month.

The Georgia Aquarium — the Western Hemisphere’s largest aquarium — has granted unprecedented access to Animal Planet to document its inner workings in the upcoming series, with a look at the many species that call the 10 million gallon complex home, including rescued southern sea otters, endangered African penguins, rescued California sea lions, manta rays and more.

The series is produced for Animal Planet by Left/Right, a Red Arrow Studios company, and Copper Pot Pictures. Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Anneka Jones and Michael LaHaie serve as executive producers. Jessie Findlay co-executive produces for Left/Right. David LaMattina and Chad Walker are the executive producers for Copper Pot Pictures. For Animal Planet, Lisa Lucas is the executive producer, Patrick Keegan is supervising producer and Meredith Russell is coordinating producer.

The Aquarium premieres May 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Animal Planet.
