Bonus Archival. This special extended episode contains original news reports of the "greatest ocean discovery in history" on September 1, 1985. First is CTV's original report the evening of the discovery, and then ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, and the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. After this, CBS News and ABC News continue their coverage with the questions around who owns the ship, and excerpts from the 1986 documentary Titanic: The Nightmare and the Dream. Lastly, Dr. Robert Ballard speaks about his discovery, and the top-secret military origins of the mission that found Titanic.

This award-winning 10-part original miniseries stars Ross Marquand (The Walking Dead, Avengers) as up-and-coming writer-director James Cameron, and tells the story of how he fought through decades of personal struggles and career setbacks to assemble the most expensive (and most humiliating) movie production of all-time, Titanic, that nearly sank two film studios.

🏆 BLOCKBUSTER is winner of Adweek's Creative Podcast of the Year, two NYF Radio Awards, and a Webby Awards Honoree for Best Miniseries.
