ABC's new supernatural serial 'The River' arrives on screens on 7 February. The new series, who's pilot was helmed by 'Orphan' director Jaume Collet-Serra and thought up by 'Paranormal Activity' creator Oren Peli, will revolve around a documentary-style hunt for a missing explorer deep in the Amazon. Entertainment Weekly have revealed a brief new glimpse of the show which consists of selected cast members in the drink looking less than pleased. Stars Paul Blackthorne, Joe Anderson ('The Crazies') and Eloise Mumford ('Lone Star') are the trio of wet ones in the pic shown below and they are joined by fellow cast-members Thomas Kretschmann, Bruce Dern, Leslie Hope, Bruce Greenwood and Katie Featherston ('Paranormal Activity'). Check out the pic and the poster for 'The River' below.
"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)."
'The River' premieres on Tuesday 7 February at 9:00pm.
