The Secret Adventures of Jules VerneThe Secret Adventures of Jules Verne is a 22-episode science fiction television series in the steampunk genre.
The plot concept is predicated on a vast fictional conspiracy beginning with the revelation that Jules Verne did not invent the stories behind his famous science fiction classic books Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth or Around the World in Eighty Days - but actually experienced these adventures.
A television technological historic footnote, the work was first hour-long series filmed entirely in HDTV format.

The Aurora is at the heart of The Secret Adventure of Jules Verne. The world's first dirigible airship, property of Mr. Phileas Fogg of London, it combines unexampled luxury, total mobility and an extraordinary array of weapons and gadgets. It is to this series what the Starship Enterprise is to Star Trek: both a home base and the route to the
world of adventure.
