Maritime Masters: Expedition Antarctica

Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) has produced Maritime Masters: Expedition Antarctica, an original docuseries showcasing life on board ultra-luxury cruise ship Scenic Eclipse for Discovery Channel and Discovery+.

The series was produced by WBD in collaboration with Dundas Media and will launch in mid-May in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

Scenic Eclipse is the world’s first discovery yacht operated by Scenic, with the show taking an access-all-areas look at world-class professionals at sea and key characters from the crew taking viewers on a voyage of discovery.

From gastronomic cuisine and personalised in-suite butler services to soaring above by helicopter and diving deep below in a custom-designed submarine, the show documents what it takes to journey to some of the world’s most pristine and culturally rich travel destinations across seven continents, including Antarctica, while delivering life-changing travel experiences for guests.

Lynn Ng, VP and head of content operations, APAC, at Warner Bros. Discovery, said: “A journey on board an ultra-luxury cruise ship is the stuff dreams are made of and as the leading global producer of real-life entertainment, there is no-one better placed to bring this to life than Warner Bros. Discovery.

“We’re excited to launch Maritime Masters: Expedition Antarctica and by bringing it to a global audience through Discovery Channel and discovery+, we know we will fascinate and excite our viewers around the world with the stories of the characters along the way.”

Speaking at MIPTV this week, WBD senior acquisitions manager, Isabelle Oliphant, told audiences that the media giant was looking for returnable factual series based around “fallen icons”, “topical, news adjacent titles”, the British royals and “anniversaries” such as the 9/11 terror attacks.
