8th And Ocean
From the team behind MTV’s genre-bending series Laguna Beach comes the next addiction in television. 8th & Ocean tells the story of 10 aspiring models living together in a beachfront apartment complex while enduring the cut-throat world of fashion. Capturing the real lives of the cast with the look and feel of a drama, 8th & Ocean is shot in the style of a narrative film, but with an "indie edge.
On a calm, tropical afternoon in the South Atlantic Ocean in April 1942, a British tramp steamer, the SS Willesden, was shelled, torpedoed and sunk by a German raider, the KMS Thor. The Willesden was carrying 47 officers and crew, and a cargo of vital war supplies destined for Britain's 8th Army in North Africa. Five of Willesden's crew were killed in the attack.
