Surface - Mondays, 8PM on NBC

Ever wonder what life would be like if a new form of sea life began to appear in locales all over the earth?

"Surface" is an expansive drama series that centers on the appearance of mysterious sea creatures in the deep ocean -- and tracks the lives of a variety of characters. They are: Laura Daughtery (Lake Bell, "Boston Legal"), the young oceanographer who discovers the secret; Government Scientist Dr. Aleksander Cirko (Rade Sherebedgia, "Snatch") and Pentagon Official Davis Lee (Ian Anthony Dale, "Hawaii"), who both try to keep things under wraps; Richard Connelly (Jay R. Ferguson, "Judging Amy"), the Louisiana fisherman-insurance salesman who loses his brother in a suspicious diving accident; and Miles (Carter Jenkins, "The Bad News Bears"), the young boy who brings the creatures ashore.

The mystery ensnares a spectrum of people, including naval officers in the South Antarctic Sea, a family in Wilmington, North Carolina, scientists from the Oceanographic Institute in Monterey, and divers in the Gulf of Mexico. The seemingly innocent creatures they find are beautiful -- but they are full of surprises as viewers continue on a journey to discover what might be lurking in the sea.

“‘Surface’ is entertainment for all ages in the tradition of ‘E.T.’ and ‘Close Encounters,’” said Josh Pate, the series’ creators and executive producers. “It will have action, suspense, thrills and heart as we track the fantastic into the familiar.”

The Pates continued: “We’ll follow the teenager as he raises the sea monster in a suburban garage. We’ll admire the young dedicated oceanographer as she takes unbelievable risks to get to the bottom of the mystery. We’ll feel the grief and obsession of the "every-man" from Louisiana and answer the questions surrounding the mysterious Dr. Cirko. This series will plumb the depths of suspense.”

“Something is down there,” said Jonas Pate.

“Surface” is from NBC Universal Television Studio and was created by Josh and Jonas Pate (“Dragnet”), who also serve as executive producers.
