ABC has released a clip from their upcoming supernatural adventure-drama “The River.” Produced by Paranormal Activity writer/director Oren “one-trick-pony” Peli and his partners, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider, the shaky-cam series will premiere mid-season this fall.
The show’s synopsis reads:
“The River” follows the story of wildlife expert and TV personality Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood). Emmet set course around the world with his wife, Tess (Leslie Hope), and son, Lincoln (Joe Anderson), while filming what would become one of the most popular shows in television. After he goes missing deep in the Amazon, his family, friends and crew set out on a mysterious and deadly journey to find him.
The pilot episode was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, Unknown) from a script by Peli, Michael Perry (Paranormal Activity 2), and veteran scribe Michael Green (“Heroes”), who was brought in to rewrite the original draft.
Gotta admit, this show looks like a lot of fun. Guess I’ll have to keep a puke bucket next to my Lazy Boy.
