THE GIANT SQUID IS CAPTURED ON VIDEO IN ITS NATURAL HABITAT FOR THE FIRST TIME AND REVEALED ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL AND NHK

Discovery Channel and NHK Crews Come Face-to-Face with the Giant Squid

Discovery Channel and NHK have joined forces to undertake the most ambitious search ever mounted to find the greatest mystery of the deep, the giant squid. With razor-toothed suckers and eyes the size of dinner plates, tales of the creature have been around since ancient times. The Norse legend of the sea monster the Kraken and the Scylla from Greek mythology might have derived from the giant squid. This massive predator has always been shrouded in secrecy, and every attempt to capture a live giant squid on camera in its natural habitat, considered by many to be the Holy Grail of natural history filmmaking, has failed. Until now.

Mankind finally confronts the creature of the deep as the first ever footage of the giant squid where it lives is revealed in Discovery Channel's MONSTER SQUID: THE GIANT IS REAL which premieres on January 27, 2013 at 8 PM ET/PT as the season finale of CURIOSITY. NHK will air their special on the first ever footage of the giant squid in early January 2013.

"When Discovery does natural history it sets the bar high, and this ground breaking project features the very first ever footage of a live giant squid in its natural habitat. Our crew came face-to-face with the giant squid, and it's the ideal season finale for our CURIOSITY series that stirs the imagination of our audience, bravely asking questions and fearlessly seeking answers. This latest production, four years in the making, is a world-first achievement for television, and I'm excited to share it," said Eileen O'Neill, Group President of Discovery and TLC Networks.

MONSTER SQUID: THE GIANT IS REAL is produced by Discovery Channel and NHK. Leslie Schwerin is Producer and Michael Masland is Executive Producer for Discovery Studios. Christine Weber is Vice President of Production and Development for Specials and also serves as Executive Producer for Discovery Channel.
