Freeform has greenlit a new drama pilot titled ‘The Deep. Production is set to begin in September in Vancouver.
‘The Deep’ is a one-hour drama that takes us inside Bristol Cove, a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean. Eric Wald and Dean White will write and executive produce the pilot. Scott Stewart will direct. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb will also serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell will serve as showrunner.
