Big Pacific

"Big Pacific" surveys the array of creatures found in and around the Pacific Ocean. Narrated by Daniel Dae Kim, the five-episode series travels from coast to coast to present a wide range of locations, species, natural phenomena and behaviors. Each episode focuses on a particular characteristic of the Pacific, such as mystery and passion, and presents stories that relate to that characteristic. Segments include how sea creatures deal with violence as an everyday part of life in the Pacific; the challenge of finding food; and how the quest to multiply spawns unusual behaviors.
