"The River" is not premiered until February 2012, but ABC has unleashed a promo for the first episode. Though short in term of time, it manages to bring forward the mysterious atmosphere as it sees some supernatural things such as a man walking on the water and a girl with a creepy face.
Coming from "Paranormal Activity" creator Oren Peli, the new thriller series follows a group of family, friends and crew who set out on a mysterious and deadly journey to find wildlife expert and TV personality Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) who went missing in the uncharted Amazon. To fund the rescue, they agree to let Dr. Cole's cagey ex-producer Clark (Paul Blackthorne) film the mission documentary-style.
Among the group are Emmet's wife Tess (Leslie Hope), his son Lincoln (Joe Anderson), the sexy and resourceful Lena (Eloise Mumford), loyal mechanic Emilio (Daniel Zacapa), and lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann). The show will start airing on ABC on Tuesday, February 7 at 9 P.M.
