Surface" is an expansive drama and undersea adventure that centers on the appearance of mysterious sea creatures in the deep ocean -- and tracks the lives of four characters.

They are: Laura Daughtery (Lake Bell), the young oceanographer who discovers the secret; Dr. Aleksander Cirko (Rade Sherbedgia), the government scientist who tries to keep things under wraps; Richard Connelly (Jay R. Ferguson), the Louisiana insurance salesman who loses his brother in a suspicious diving accident; and Miles Bennett (Carter Jenkins), the young boy who brings one of the creatures ashore.

The mystery ensnares a spectrum of people, including naval officers in the South Antarctic Sea, a family in North Carolina, scientists from the Oceanographic Institute in Monterey, and fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico.

The seemingly innocent creatures they find are beautiful, and kids may even want to play with them -- but is there something more to them? One thing's for sure - they're full of surprises as viewers embark on this journey to discover what might be lurking in the sea.
