The show began streaming on the Netflix platform in the US on June 1, 2016.
The television series is based on the internationally acclaimed graphic novel series created by multi-award-winning best-selling comic book author and playwright Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us, All-New Wolverine), illustrated by James Brouwer (Justice League Beyond) and published by Gestalt Publishing. Taylor serves as head writer for the animated series, and Brouwer serves as art director.
“We have the best people possible working on this series, and have done absolutely everything in our power to maintain the integrity of the storytelling that won people over in the graphic novels. With both Taylor and Brouwer in pivotal roles, this series cannot help but amaze,” said Wolfgang Bylsma, Editor-in-Chief of Gestalt Publishing.
The Deep follows the incredible adventures of the Nektons, a family of underwater explorers who live on a submarine. There’s fearless 12-year-old Antaeus; his analytical 15-year-old sister Fontaine, an astute navigator; and their parents Will, an oceanographer, and Kaiko, a marine biologist; and, of course… Ant’s pet fish, Jeffrey! Their ongoing adventures continue a family legacy of exploring uncharted areas of the earth’s oceans to unravel the mysteries of the deep sea.
