The series would be focused on retelling the horrors of slavery with the help of underwater technology.
Created by documentary outfit Associated, the series would begin at the time that Ghana is celebrating 2019 as the Year of Return.
This stems from the fact that the first slaves captured from Africa arrived in Jameston, Virgina, exactly 400 years ago.
