Mermaids attack from The Deep

Waterhouse, John William, 1849-1917; A MermaidFreeform has given a green light to The Deep, a new fantasy series set in a coastal town with a reputation for mermaids.

“The Deep is a very different show than one would expect when they hear the word ‘mermaid’ – the mermaid tale has been reinvented in this pilot,” Karey Burke, executive vice president, Programming and Development explained. “The writing is thrilling, stories complex and scary, and we are excited to explore the themes of obsession and violence through these amazing creatures.”

The one-hour drama takes us inside Bristol Cove, a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean. Eric Wald and Dean White will write and executive produce the pilot. Scott Stewart (“Dominion”) will direct. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb will also serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell (“Finding Carter”) will serve as showrunner. Production begins in Vancouver in September.
