SEARCH FOR THE OCEAN’S SUPER PREDATOR achieves ratings success

 

Entitled GREAT WHITE EATEN ALIVE for the UK audience, SEARCH FOR THE OCEAN’S SUPER PREDATOR proved to be a ratings hit for Nat Geo Wild UK. Its debut screening on 17 December 2013, was one of the channels strongest performers, pulling in over 130,000 viewers.

SEARCH FOR THE OCEAN’S SUPER PREDATOR (1 x 60’ HD) tells the story of a super predator’s epic underwater attack that leads investigators to a mysterious and powerful natural phenomenon that, for a few short weeks each year, attracts the ocean’s most fearsome predators.

In the hidden depths of Australia’s wild Southern Ocean, a great white shark is savagely attacked one hundred metres below the sea’s surface by a far larger and faster mystery predator.

An electronic tracking device attached to the great white records a high-speed underwater chase, six hundred metres deep, before the shark and its tag are savagely devoured.

Two weeks later, after being carried in the belly of the unknown killer, the still functioning tag is excreted and washed ashore, holding clues that could reveal the identity of the shark’s super predator.

SEARCH FOR THE OCEAN’S SUPER PREDATOR is written and directed by Michael Lynch, and produced by Leighton De Barros and David Riggs.

ABC Commercial holds worldwide distribution rights to the program.
