"Premiering on Discovery Channel on Sunday, October 12 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT, Colossal Squid is a landmark television event that presents the dramatic capture of a massive squid off the coast of Antarctica, and the groundbreaking research to discover the secrets of one of the ocean's most elusive and mysterious creatures.

Known by ancient seafarers as The Kraken, the Colossal Squid has fascinated scientists and dominated the nightmares of sailors for generations. With no known limit to how large these mighty sea creatures can grow, the Colossal Squid is one of the underwater world's greatest enigmas. What we do know is they are the planet's most terrifying predator - jet propelled, invisible, fearless, ruthless and heavily armed."
