The experiences of the men and officers of the atomic-powered submarine Seaview, as they explore and battle the sinister elements of the ocean floor on behalf of the U.S. government's attempts to further research. The series was created by Irwin Allen, who directed the 1961 movie Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea as the same name used for the classic TV series. Allen went on to create Lost in Space, Land of the Giants, & The Time Tunnel. In 1972, Allen directed The Poseidon Adventure, about an ill-fated ocean-liner that tumbled to the bottom of the sea. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea also shared many of it's props with Lost in Space, Batman, & Land of the Giants, to name a few.
