City Beneath the Sea - City Beneath the Sea (1971 film) - Netflix
City Beneath the Sea is a 1971 science fiction television film and television pilot for a proposed series by Irwin Allen. It started as a conceptual 10-minute demo reel as a means to sell the plot and concept to television studios. The concept was not bought initially and a few years later Allen produced a two-hour telefilm for NBC. The two-hour movie again failed to gain the response necessary to be picked up as a series, but has remained a cult favorite amongst sci-fi and Irwin Allen fans. In the UK it was shown theatrically in 1972 as One Hour to Doomsday. It was released on DVD as part of the Warner Archive Collection.
