NEW ANIMATED SERIES TO BE PRODUCED BY TECHNICOLOR, BASED ON AUSTRALIAN GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES ABOUT A MULTI-ETHNIC FAMILY OF UNDERWATER EXPLORERS.
Gestalt Comics’ international hit graphic novel The Deep is to be turned into an animated TV series by Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH).
The Deep, created by Australian playwright and best-selling comic book writer Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us, Star Wars: Blood Ties) and illustrator James Brouwer (Justice League Beyond), follows the adventures of a family of explorers, the Nektons.
Technicolor Digital Productions aims to develop and produce 26 half-hour television episodes, which follows the Nekton’s incredible adventures.
Targeting children aged 8-12 and their families, each self-contained episode of The Deep will bring the family a step closer to unraveling the mysteries of the deep sea; and every story will be filled with action, adventure, incredible sea monsters, fantastic vehicles, unbelievable bravery, and the odd family squabble, of course!
“The Deep is one of those unique properties that truly appeals to all ages and genders by delivering compelling entertainment in the form of enthralling adventure, heart-pounding danger, laugh out loud humor and incredible discoveries all wrapped in unbreakable familial relationships,” said Steven Wendland, Vice President, Technicolor Digital Productions.
“It’s the family we all dreamed of being a part of when we were kids and are anxious and excited to share with our own children now.”
