Ever since we had the chance to watch the first episode of ABC’s new series “The River” at this past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, we’ve been anxiously awaiting word on when exactly it will be debuting (all we knew was it would be “mid-season”), and today the news has come.
Look for “The River” to premiere on Tuesday, February 7th, 2012, at 9:00 PM, filling the spot currently occupied by the “Dancing with the Stars” results show.
Bruce Greenwood, Leslie Hope, Joe Anderson, Jeff Galfer, and Thomas Kretschmann star in the ABC Studios television project produced by Oren Peli and his Paranormal Activity franchise collaborators Jason Blum and Steven Schneider. The pilot episode was directed by none other than Jaume Collet-Serra (The Orphan, House of Wax).
Famed explorer Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) went looking for magic deep in the uncharted Amazon and never returned. The shocking truth about his disappearance is out there, somewhere, just waiting to be discovered. To the millions of kids who grew up watching his nature show, Dr. Cole was a hero. To his own son, Lincoln (Joe Anderson), he was more of an enigma. Now, six months after he vanished, Lincoln is finally ready to bury the past when Dr. Cole’s emergency beacon suddenly goes off. At the urging of his mother, Tess (Leslie Hope), Lincoln reluctantly joins her on a search for his father. To fund the rescue, they agree to let Dr. Cole’s cagey ex-producer, Clark (Paul Blackthorne), film the mission documentary-style. The mixed crew of old friends and new acquaintances includes the sexy and resourceful Lena (Eloise Mumford), loyal mechanic Emilio (Daniel Zacapa) and lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann).
