FOX International Channels is to air Alien Deep, a new five-part series, this month in Singapore on National Geographic Channel (StarHub TV Channel 411 and mio TV Channel 201) in association with Samsung Electronics.

Alien Deep features Dr Robert Ballard, the explorer who found the Titanic at its final resting place and National Geographic explorer-in-residence, in a journey to the bottom of the ocean, exploring shipwrecks, wildlife and underwater volcanoes.

Ballard will be joined on camera by leaders in modern science, like Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin and TV personality Bill Nye the Science Guy, as well as professional surfers, fishermen, and boat pilots who understand the sea at an instinctive level. From scientists to surfers, Ballard and his team will travel the world, seeking answers to questions at the root of earth and humanity. Where did life come from? What made the continents? What is the ocean’s engine? Are rogue waves real? Will men ever call the sea home?

Alien Deep is produced for National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) by National Geographic Television (NGT). For NGT, series producer is Gary Johnstone. For NGCI, executive vice president and head of international content is Hamish Mykura.
