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.
