Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who brought the project to DreamWorks back when the company was within the Paramount fold, are producing.

Created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, “Atlantis Rising” is a five-part miniseries published by Platinum Studios. Story kicks off when seismic disturbances at sea force world militaries to investigate the deepest part of the ocean, where an underground civilization emerges to engage in war with planet Earth.

“Atlantis Rising” is one of the projects that DreamWorks held on to after exiting Paramount in the fall.

“Motorcade” will likely move forward before “Atlantis Rising.”
