Carter Jenkins – Unfathomable
Q. What are the current projects that you are working on?
A. I am about to start filming this new show I’m on called “Fathom,” which will be on NBC this fall on Monday nights at 8 o’clock. I have this movie coming out called Bad News Bears and it comes out in theaters July 22nd and also I have a Disney movie that will be on TV called “Life Is Ruff” coming out July 15th at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on the Disney Channel.
Q. What can you tell us about the premise for the new show “Fathom” and your character Miles?
A. Well, Fathom is a one hour drama about a mysterious sea creature that people all over the world are beginning to spot in the ocean. My character Miles, he lives in San Diego with his family and he encounters the creature one night while swimming in the ocean. He’s wakeboarding with some friends and I also find one of the creatures eggs and decide to take it home with me. I’m in one a crazy time when the egg actually hatches. So, there is going to be a lot of twists and turns in the story that’s going to happen.

A. I always wanted to be a part of something that will keep the audience guessing and I’m really excited about this. I always wanted to be a part of something that just keeps the audience guessing.
