THE DEEP series follows the Nekton family – a brilliant team of underwater explorers. Their adventures tap into the explorer in all of us as they investigate the mysterious depths of the ocean – that final unexplored frontier on our own planet. A place where leviathans swim through sunken cities, where pirates lurk amidst floating black markets and where a mysterious group of Guardians hide long lost secrets.
Follow Ant Nekton, 12-year old explorer, inventor and adventurer, along with his dad Will, a former Olympic swimmer, mom Kaiko (pilot, mechanic and awesome marine biologist) and 15-year old sister Fontaine, also an amazing swimmer and navigator, as they explore the world’s oceans, discover lost worlds and rescue endangered creatures.
The series is based on the Aurealis Award-winning graphic novel series created by multi-award-winning best-selling comic book author and playwright Tom Taylor, illustrated by James Brouwer and published by Gestalt Comics. THE DEEP showcases an environment that focuses on teamwork, problem-solving, a sense of adventure, constant curiosity, discovery and exploration. THE DEEP is a bit of a throwback to family adventure stories like LOST IN SPACE and THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA.
Since its debut, THE DEEP has proven to be a top-rated show that resonates with kids around the world. Nominated for the 2018 BAFTA award for International Animation, The Deep has garnered international industry awards, including the 2017 Kidscreen Award for Best New Series (Kids Category) and most recently, the Golden Sparrow Award at the German Children’s Media Festival and the Best Script at the 50th Annual AWGIE Awards in Australia for Children’s Television (5-14 years old).
