13 x 45 min for BBC1

Far from home and desperate for answers, Jason washes up on the shores of An ancient land. A mysterious place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired Goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants - this is the city of Atlantis.

Aided by his two new friends, Pythagoras and Hercules, Jason embarks on a voyage of discovery, and salvation, which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa, come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead.

Atlantis, which has just finished transmitting on BBC1, has been a huge critical and ratings success, with consolidated figures in the UK of over nine million for the opening episode. It transmitted in BBC America in October 2013 with the channel receiving the highest ever-viewing figures for a season premier. The show has been re-commissioned by the BBC and filming begins on the second season in March 2014.
