Merlin Entertainments and Technicolor will launch a series of entertainment experiences based on the animated series “The Deep” at SEA LIFE aquariums.
The themed events will come to more than 20 SEA LIFE aquariums in the U.K. and Germany. Children will be able to solve the secrets of The Deep by searching for clues around the various exhibits at the attraction.
The events, entitled The Deep Sea Life, began last weekend in the UK. They will commence in October in the German market.
Pam Kunick Cohen, head, brand management, licensing and merchandising, Technicolor, says: “When fans connect with a property as they have with The Deep, they want to be involved in it across many areas.
“We can’t think of a better way to kick off the show’s new season and get fans engaged with the brand in an authentic way than with our promotion at Merlin Entertainment’s SEA LIFE aquariums.”
The Deep follows the Nekton family of underwater explorers. They live aboard a state-of-the-art submarine, The Aronnax. They explore the depths of the oceans to unravel the mysteries of the deep. The series was optioned by Technicolor and produced by Canadian animation studio Nerd Corps Entertainment, a subsidiary of DHX Media.
Ken Faier, senior vice president and executive producer, content, DHX Media, says: “The underwater adventures of The Deep continue to thrill kids and families, and we’re delighted to be part of the show’s global success.”
“We’re confident that these new Sea Life entertainment experiences … will keep audiences wanting more of the The Deep’s Nekton family.”
