Will shoot underwater docu in Truk Lagoon

Al Giddings, who in tandem with James Cameron directed the underwater scenes in “Titanic,” has been tabbed to shoot the TBS undersea docu special “Truk Lagoon: Underwater Odyssey,” an hourlong “Wild!Life Adventures” special from Turner Original Prods.

Special will begin shooting in January in Micronesia for an Aug. 30 premiere on TBS.
