The Deep

SPACE viewers get ready to dive deep into the dangerously dark, bone-chilling depths of THE DEEP. Part underwater thriller, part science fiction, the five-part BBC mini-series takes the plunge into Canadian waters with a five-night event, premiering Monday, Dec. 13 through Friday, Dec. 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on SPACE.

Starring Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, THE RICHES), James Nesbitt (Bloody Sunday, Murphy’s Law), and Goran Visnjic (ER, Sparticus), the cast of THE DEEP stir up just enough steamy relationship drama to make waves in unchartered waters.

THE DEEP is also available on demand at www.SPACECAST.com immediately following its television premiere.

THE DEEP is a political minefield of crushing pressure, total darkness and unimaginable danger. The thriller’s gripping action follows a submarine crew to the final frontiers of Earth in their quest for unknown and remarkable life forms. On board is an all-star crew played by an all-star cast, Driver as steely submarine skipper Frances Kelly, Nesbitt as troubled-but-brilliant engineer Clem Donnelly and Visnjic as marine biologist Samson Ungliss.

In the premiere episode of THE DEEP entitled “To the Furthest Place”, a group of scientists begin their mission aboard the submarine Orpheus to discover a renewable source of energy in the Arctic Ocean. They’re nervous, however, since the last vessel disappeared mysteriously while on the same mission, with its crew aboard

THE DEEP was a success in the UK where it premiered as the BBC’s #1 show in its time slot, attracting 5.3 million viewers. The series was written by award-winning playwright and screen-writer Simon Donald and produced by Will Gould for Tiger Aspect. The chilling serial was filmed at BBC Scotland’s Dumbarton Studios in Glasgow. The directors are Jim O’Hanlon (Emma) and Colm McCarthy (Murphy’s Law).
