Mike deGruy
We have officially started pre-production on the GULF of Mexico documentary "Science of the Spill. This "Film Crew" documentary lead by Mike deGruy is a 6 part mini-series that follows the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent toxic events involving the oil spill and BP's use of dispersants. It will explore the impact on the Gulf Coast today as well as look at the possible effects 5-10 years from now.

The first leg of our trip will be Dec. 6th aboard the Research Vessel ATLANTIS the home of the ALVIN Deep Submersive. We will take a 6 hour journey over 5000 feet down to the vicinity of the Deepwater Horizon wreck to film the impact onsea life in deep water. This will be a historic voyage as it will be the first MANNED journey and the last expedition for ALVIN!

In January we begin the next leg of our 3-4 week trek driving along the entire Gulf coast shooting the remaining 5 episodes involving habitats with leading scientists to discuss current and long term effects of this disaster.
