The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas.
While chasing a whaler, the Greenpeace boat sinks with the vessel, pulled by a mysterious force underwater and only Meeno Paloma survives. Meanwhile, after the disappearance of six ships in the Bermuda Triangle in one year, the millionaire owner of the Mineral Shipping Lines Eric Benerall hires the skeptical journalist of The Observer Howard Thomas; the scientist Bruce Geller; the offshore engineer Emily Patterson and the psychic Stan Lathem to investigate the reasons for the phenomenon in the area. If the team succeeds in their quest for the truth, each one would receive five million dollars. They find a high-tech underwater facility from the Navy, and each one of them has glimpses of alternative reality after their discovery. They conclude that the experiment conducted by the Navy is affecting the electromagnetic balance of the ocean, while trying to find a way to close the dimensional tear opened by the Philadelphia Experiment. But they believe that the procedure actually will open... Written by

Executive producer Dean Devlin wrote the scene in which Meeno Paloma is in the boat with the Greenpeace people when he was in high school. See more »
When Dr. Geller is looking at the obits, the birth and death dates do not match up with the text. Furthermore they are in the day/month style which in the US is only common for military publications, not a paper in Miami. See more »
Bryan Singer and Dean Devlin are highly respected director/producers in their own right, with world-wide successful productions behind their names, such as Independence Day and Godzilla. Considering The Triangle was a mini-series for TV it is still impressive enough to rank alongside excellent film productions as well. One hopes it will make it to DVD as well so that it can be enjoyed throughout the world. The production value is high (not surprisingly considered the team who put it together) and the casting is excellent. I was especially impressed by the supporting cast and guest starring roles. Very often these minor roles are ignored and not enough effort is put into casting good quality actors for these roles and this can often lead to bringing a production down, however, in The Triangle this is not the case and they assist in making the stories and emotions truly real and believable. The majority of these smaller roles were cast in Cape Town South Africa, which makes one take note of the wonderful talent available there. I especially enjoyed the Meeno (Lou Diamond Phillips) storyline and emotionally charged relationship between him and his friend from the raft, Beatty (Sean Cameron Michael) - wonderful, intense acting. Congrats Electric Entertainment!
