Matt does not watch much telly despite my nagging. He has never seen DEXTER, never set eyes on True Blood, does not even know who Sam and Dean are in their battle with the SUPERNATURAL, but he is going to watch THE RIVER…..maybe because the name Oren Peli is attached to it and with the show edging closer to its air date and with Matt already taking over the reviews, here for the readers and Matt himself, is the link to the official website that has just been launched.
The Plot for The River:
Famed explorer Dr. Emmet Cole (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 (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 (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 (Kretschmann).
The River” stars Bruce Greenwood, Leslie Hope, and Joe Anderson. Jeff Galfer and Thomas Kretschmann.
The show is due to air on February 7th, 2012.
