Summary:
Fueled by a lifelong passion reminiscent of Jules Verne's Captain Nemo, Texas businessman Peter Robbins embarks on a challenging four-year odyssey to create the Alicia—a one-of-a-kind, homemade, six-person sub with the world's first panoramic underwater view.

With his eye on underwater tourism and exploring lost Word War II wrecks, Robbins sets out to build Alicia from scratch with a handful of helpers and a tiny budget. NOVA immerses viewers in the setbacks and triumphs of Alicia's design and construction as the team's ingenuity and problem-solving are stretched to their limit.

Follow Robbins and his dedicated crew as they tackle unforeseen obstacles and celebrate their successes. Then share the thrill of Alicia's maiden voyage — an expedition to the depths of the English Channel to find the sunken remains of a forgotten wartime wreck.
