The Return of Captain Nemo (theatrical title: The Amazing Captain Nemo) is a 1978 American
science fiction adventure television miniseries directed by Alex March and Paul Stader (the
latter directed the underwater sequences), and loosely based on characters and settings from
Jules Verne's novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. It was written by six screenwriters
including Robert Bloch and has been considered an attempt by producer Irwin Allen to duplicate
the success of his Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
