A new, four-part video series, The Adventures of Zack and Molly is about an unlikely duo exploring the deep ocean produced by ECOGIG in collaboration with Sherman’s Lagoon creator and filmmaker Jim Toomey. Zack is more interested in the small world of his smartphone than the larger world around him. His online request for a roommate is answered by Molly, a tech-savvy Dumbo Octopus on a mission to tell the world about the importance of the deep ocean. Molly wants to use Zack’s apartment for her global communications headquarters, but Zack is skeptical. To win Zack over, Molly takes him to her deep ocean home in the Gulf of Mexico to see its unique features and diverse marine life, and to help him understand how human activities threaten its health.
