Apple has landed the global rights to the documentary Fathom, which will premiere exclusively on the streaming service this June.
Directed and photographed by Drew Xanthopoulos (The Sensitives), Fathom follows Dr Ellen Garland and Dr Michelle Fournet, two scientists focused on the study of humpback whale songs and social communication. As they embark on parallel research journeys on opposite sides of the world, they seek to better understand whale culture and communication. The documentary film uniquely reveals a deep commitment and reverence to the scientific process and the universal human need to seek answers about the world around us. From hypothesis to groundbreaking experiences in the field, Fathom showcases the passion, curiosity, collaboration, perseverance and work it takes for leading scientists to make scientific discoveries.
Fathom is produced by Sandbox Films, Impact Partners, Walking Upstream Pictures, Back Allie Entertainment and Hidden Candy. The film is produced by Emmy Award winner Megan Gilbride (Tower) and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Andrea Meditch (Grizzly Man), Emmy Award nominee Jessica Harrop (Follow This), Greg Boustead (Fireball: Visitors from Darker Worlds) and Emmy Award winner Josh Braun (Wild Wild Country).
The film premieres on Friday 25th June. Here’s a trailer:
Fathom is available on Apple TV+, as part of a £4.99 monthly subscription, with a seven-day free trial. For more information on Apple TV+ and how to get it, click here.
