A key piece of the casting puzzle for the ABC pilot “The River”, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, has fallen into place with the show’s hiring of Leslie Hope to play the lead female, Tess Cole.
“The River” centers on Tess (Hope, “24”, Bruiser), a world traveler and top-notch producer who, six months after her TV explorer husband, Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood), goes missing in the Amazon, receives a signal from his beacon.
Convinced that Emmet is alive, Tess forces her reluctant son, Lincoln (Joe Anderson), to abandon his medical studies and lead a rescue expedition.
Paul Blackthorne and Eloise Mumford fill out the cast of “The River”, a thriller/horror drama from Paranormal Activity mastermind Oren Peli.
