Technicolor Options has secured the rights for the internationally successful graphic novel series, The Deep, published by Gestalt Comics.

The Deep follows the Nekton family, who live aboard a state of the art submarine, The Aronnax, and explore unchartered areas of the oceans. Each member of the family has unique skills and are all equally passionate about sea life conservation. They seek to solve the ultimate mysteries that appear to be connected to a place we know as Atlantis.

“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.”

“Technicolor is the ideal animation studio to bring The Deep to life,” added Robert Chandler,Executive Producer, The Deep. “The CG team at Technicolor has the ability not only to visually knock your socks off, but also to deliver moments of tenderness, character and heart. That’s why The Deep and Technicolor make a great partnership. It is that special combination which leads to creating great series and stories.”

The multi-award winning series is created by Tom Taylor (Star Wars: Blood Ties, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Injustice: Gods Among Us) and illustrator James Brouwer (Justice League Beyond).
