Blue Planet II "The Deep" BBC
Aboard OceanX research vessel the Alucia, Jennifer spent months at sea working alongside BBC’s production unit on many of the sequences featured in the Deep episode, including the eye-popping brine pool “lakes” at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and the first ever submarine dives to 3,000-feet in Antarctica.
Blue Planet II aired in over 200 countries and territories worldwide. A few highlights: it was the most-watched show in the UK in 2017, and reached over 220 million people in China, where it slowed down the internet on its release. The UK House of Parliament passed a tax on single-use plastics that name checked this series, as did the creation of a UN Panel on plastics in the ocean.
