Technicolor and DHX Media have made an agreement with BBC (U.K.) to bring the underwater animated adventure series The Deep to CBBC starting this month.

With a thirst for discovery and ultra-modern technology, the Nektons travel around the ocean’s depths, meeting swimming leviathans and sunken cities that possess the secrets of the mysterious Guardians.
