Titanic Artifacts to Be Examined in New Series


VANCOUVER: Canadian producers Infinity Filmed Entertainment Group and Partners in Motion have inked a deal with Premier Exhibitions to gain exclusive access to artifacts from the wreckage of the RMS Titanic in order to produce a new series.

Premier Exhibitions has exclusively recovered, preserved, researched and documented more than 5,500 artifacts from her wreck site over nearly 30 years. Infinity Films and Partners in Motion have gained exclusive access to the collection. In the upcoming television series Titanic: Stories from the Deep, the producers will reveal stories behind individual artifacts in the moments before the shipwreck. Principal photography on season one is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.

“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, the president of Infinity Films.

Ron Goetz, the executive VP of Partners in Motion, added: “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, the chairman and CEO of Premier Exhibitions.
