Netflix is heading out to sea with the first high-end nature documentary series from its deal with Blue Planet II creator James Honeyborne. The streaming service has ordered “Oceans” (working title) from his production company Freeborne Media.
The announcement comes after Deadline revealed in January that Netflix had inked a multi-year deal with Honeyborne to produce nature and science series.
While 70% of the globe is covered in water, so little is known about each ocean’s unique characteristics.
Each episode will focus on a different ocean, combining the disciplines of oceanography, geography, and earth sciences to experience these characteristics in new ways.
From the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, to the raging wildness of the Atlantic Ocean, from the deceptively peaceful waters of the Pacific Ocean that are surrounded by a ring of fire, to the freezing isolation of the Southern and Arctic Oceans – the series will celebrate the diversity of our planet’s greatest habitats through the experiences of the remarkable creatures that live within each one.
