Water. The perfect hiding place.
Ever wonder what life would be like if a new form of sea life began to appear in locales all over the earth?
Surface is an expansive drama series that centers on the appearance of mysterious sea creatures in the deep ocean -- and tracks the lives of a variety of characters. They are: Laura Daughtery, the young oceanographer who discovers the secret; Government Scientist Dr. Aleksander Cirko and Pentagon Official Davis Lee, who both try to keep things under wraps; Richard Connelly, the Louisiana fisherman-insurance salesman who lost his brother in a suspicious diving accident; and Miles, the young boy who brings the creatures ashore.
The mystery ensnares a spectrum of people, including naval officers in the South Antarctic Sea, a family in Wilmington, North Carolina, scientists from the Oceanographic Institute in Monterey, and divers in the Gulf of Mexico. The seemingly innocent creatures they find are beautiful -- but they are full of surprises as viewers continue on a journey to discover what might be lurking in the sea.
The series aired on NBC from September 2005-February 2006 on Mondays at 8:00 pm (EST).
With a tsunami approaching the coast, the residents of Wilmington find themselves under a mandatory evacuation. Among the mass exodus of people leaving for safety, Miles and his family scramble to make it off the island.
Meanwhile, Laura travels to North Carolina to find Rich, who has been arrested by military police at the mysterious laboratory. As employees hurriedly vacate the building, Rich is locked up in a cell and left to die.
