MINNEAPOLIS, March 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FutureDude Entertainment, the premier source for captivating, independently-produced, future-focused adventure stories today announced a power player partnership with TV industry veteran Dorothy (D.C.) Fontana—the writer and story editor who helped create Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Fontana joins forces with FutureDude Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer, Jeffrey Morris, as a Consulting Producer. She will help develop two different worlds—one underwater, the other on the moon's surface—for the production company's post-apocalyptic, science-driven TV series, Oceanus: Revelation, slated for release in 2019.
"With less than eight percent of the ocean floor explored, the story potential of the alien world on our own planet is limited only by the human imagination," said Oceanus: Revelation Creator and Executive Producer, Jeffrey Morris. "D.C. Fontana's work on beloved TV series stands the test of time. We are excited to partner with her to create a unique sci-fi universe for Oceanus that will engage fans for years to come."
"I've had the honor of shaping new worlds for several iconic TV shows. I'm particularly excited to join Jeffrey and the FutureDude Entertainment team as we push the creative envelope in bringing the familiar, yet mysterious, worlds of Oceanus: Revelation to life," said D.C. Fontana, Consulting Producer, Oceanus: Revelation.
Oceanus: Revelation is a 10-hour television miniseries set in the mid-21st Century developed in association with London-based film and television company Evolutionary Films.
The Earth is devastated thanks to a trillionaire entrepreneur who has forced a new path of evolution on an unsuspecting world. Oceanus (named after the Greek god of the sea) follows a team of scientists and engineers who escaped the doomsday event in two spectacular cities: one underwater; the other on the moon. Together they fight the elements, dwindling supplies, and the incessant manipulations of the power-mad individual behind the disaster.
