Superhero fish-guy The Deep – from the Amazon Prime Video hit “The Boys” – reveals his, uh, deepest secrets in a new Audible Original podcast.
Launching on June 9, “The Boys: Deeper and Deeper” is billed as an “in-the-world” interview. The Setup: The Deep, featured in Chace Crawford’s TV series, is on the road promoting his memoir, ‘Deeper,’ and sits down for an unrestricted podcast interview alongside his wife, Cassandra (played by Katy Breer).
The podcast release follows the June 3 premiere of “The Boys” Season 3. There’s a certain corporate synergy at work: Audible is Amazon’s audio storytelling division.
“The Boys: Deeper and Deeper” follows The Deep’s journey through the current season, following his exile from The Seven. From the Audible podcast description: “He may be lord of the seven seas, but for The Deep, life has been a tsunami of humiliation and setbacks. After braving the childhood trauma of being the weird kid with gills, Deep rose to the top, enjoying worldwide fame with Earth’s Mightiest Superheroes. But his public glory masked the lack of respect from his teammates that crushed him, day after day. When he found himself patrolling the streets of Sandusky, Ohio and then engulfed in the Church of the Collective, Deep realized he had sunk even deeper than the Mariana Trench.
