VANCOUVER PRODUCERS STRIKE TITANIC DEAL
Vancouver-based producers Infinity Filmed Entertainment Group Ltd. and Partners in Motion have signed an exclusive access arrangement with Premier Exhibitions, Inc. to produce a new television series, Titanic: Stories from the Deep.
Premier Exhibitions, Inc. is the Salvor-in-Possession of the RMS Titanic and has exclusively recovered, preserved, researched and documented more than 5,500 artifacts from her wreck site over nearly thirty years. These artifacts are featured in major exhibitions around the world including both Las Vegas and Orlando as part of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
The television series, Titanic: Stories from the Deep,promises to reveal stories behind individual artifacts in the moments before the shipwreck; what they are, how they came to be onboard and who may have owned them. And what about those owners? Did they survive the icy waters that night or are they known only by the clues left on the ocean floor?
The deal, which grants Infinity Films and Partners in Motion exclusive access to the collection, allows the producers to engage broadcasters and distributors throughout the development phase of the series.
“This is the chance of a lifetime. We have a unique opportunity to find our way back to the Titanic and explore the lives of those who were on board thanks to the objects they left behind,” said Shel Piercy, President of Infinity Films.
Adds Ron Goetz, Executive Vice President of Partners in Motion: “We expect this series will move into production early in 2017 and are now reviewing potential broadcasters and foreign producers.”
“The story of Titanic is not one story, but many. This collaboration will give untold stories a voice: inspiring future generations and enhancing Titanic’s legacy,” said Daoping Bao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Premier Exhibitions, Inc.
Principal photography on season one of Titanic: Stories from the Deep is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
