Robert Zemeckis has been quite a busy filmmaker and he's just jumped on board a new series for The CW called The Cove. The series comes from the producing team, Chad Fiveash and James Stoteraux, who are behind shows like The Vampire Diaries, Krypton, One Tree Hill, and more.
The Cove is a one-hour series is described as a "soapy, swashbuckling adventure that follows estranged sisters in the aftermath of their father’s death as they return to the Caribbean resort island they frequented as a family. They discover the sun-drenched paradise is hiding many secrets, including the missing treasure that was their father’s obsession and may ultimately hold the key to eternal life."
As someone who enjoys swashbuckling adventure's involving hidden treasure, I'll give this show a shot. Zemeckis' involvement with the series will only make it better.
Zemeckis is also an executive producer on the upcoming NBC mystery drama Manifest, the live-action reboot of The Jetsons, and the Netflix series What/If. He is also set to direct a film adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches, and Dwayne Johnson's epic film based on the Hawaiian King, King Kamehameha.
