"Atlantis Rising" is a documentary series on National Geographic that follows executive producer and Oscar-winning legend James Cameron; three-time Emmy-winning filmmaker Simcha] Jacobovici; and a group of archeologists, scientists and historians as they set out to search for the true "Atlantean" civilization and for a possible location for the mother city, the lost city itself. The team draws clues from "Timaeus" and "Critias," the source of the story of Atlantis, penned by fourth century B.C. Greek philosopher Plato.

The legend of Atlantis has sparked controversy and debate for thousands of years — is the story fact or fiction? And if Atlantis was a real place, can its ruins be found today?

In the course of the expedition, the investigators discovered six ancient anchors that could date back to the Bronze Age and that together may be the greatest ancient anchor hoard ever found on the Atlantic side of the Strait of Gibraltar.

The team used cutting-edge technology and Plato's ancient writings as a virtual treasure map to lead the way. While many people search for a singular underwater site, the series will embark on a journey from Greece to the Atlantic Ocean, exploring multiple locations on air, on land and deep below the sea with the goal to unlock the secrets of this age-old mystery.

"Atlantis Rising" is executive produced by James Cameron, Simcha Jacobovici and Yaron Niski. For National Geographic, Matt Renner is executive producer and vice president, production; and Tim Pastore is president, original programming and production.
