National Geographic Channel and Discovery Canada have greenlit three-time Emmy Award-winning director Simcha Jacobovici‘s (pictured, right) forthcoming documentary, Search for Atlantis.

Produced by Toronto-based Associated Producers and exec produced by James Cameron (left), the two-hour doc special will follow an exploration team as it investigates evolving theories about where Atlantis was actually located and who inhabited the mysterious city, as well as the type of disaster that might have sank the city more than three millennia ago.

Principal photography on the film is underway in Sicily, Malta, Crete, Santorini and Sardinia, with underwater portions being shot off the coast of Spain.

Search for Atlantis, which is slated to premiere internationally this winter, marks the follow up to National Geographic Channel, Discovery Canada and Associated Producers’ Finding Atlantis, which aired in 2011.

Yaron Niski will serve as executive producer on the film alongside Cameron. Jacobovici and Felix Golubev, meanwhile, serve as producers. Ken MacDonald, GM and VP at Discovery Networks Canada, is a production executive.

“We are excited to partner with Cameron and Jacobovici for the quest to find Atlantis, one of the magical worlds that has resonated in our collective imaginations for thousands of years,” said Tim Pastore, president of original programming and production, National Geographic Channel, in a statement.

“The first part of this investigation made for a particularly timely special, drawing a large viewing audience when we aired it in 2011,” said MacDonald in a statement. “Discovery’s Canadian audiences are still just as intrigued by iconic mysteries, and this expanded investigation into the facts behind the myth in Search for Atlantis more than fits the bill.”

    Wondering how and when Atlantis will fit in the Biblical time line?

  • My sincere congratulations for Simcha, James, Yaron, Felix, National Geographic and Discovery Max Canada for this great contribution to the Historical-Scientific Atlantology which undoubtedly will mean this blockbuster and film about Atlantis.

    I feel very grateful that I find yourselves consulted to me as an expert advisor on historical-scientific atlantology for the Iberian Peninsula and nearby waters of the Atlantic. It has been an honor working with you, and has also been an unforgettable an special experience in many ways.

    I am anxious for the premiere of this great documentary that make history come, because I am convinced will be the best historical-scientific documentary ever made about Atlantis! which will also be an authentic Art-Work, a Masterpiece worthy of Emmy and Oscar awards, and many other awards.

    My best wishes,
    Georgeos Diaz-Montexano
