The cast of 'The River' - ABC Television

ABC’s new paranormal thriller The River debuts on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 at 9:00 p.m., and if it’s anywhere near as interesting as its trailer we’re in for a wild ride with this one. From Steven Spielberg and Oren Peli (the man behind the Paranormal Activity films), The River features a cast that includes Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek), Joe Anderson (Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2, The Grey), Leslie Hope (24), Eloise Mumford (Lone Star), Paul Blackthorne (Lipstick Jungle), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong), Daniel Zacapa (Resurrection Blvd.), Shaun Parkes (The Mummy Returns), and Paulina Gaitán (Sin Nombre).

The Plot:
The River follows the story of world famous wildlife expert and TV personality Dr. Emmet Cole, host of the beloved series The Undiscovered Country. After Cole goes missing deep in the Amazon, his family, friends and crew set out on a mysterious and deadly journey to find him. Led by his wife, Tess, and estranged son, Lincoln, the rescue mission will take them deep into the unexplored reaches on the Amazon River. A place where nature is cruel, magic is real, and nothing is what it seems.
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, waiting to be discovered. To the millions of kids who grew up watching his 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 alluring and resourceful Lena (Eloise Mumford), loyal mechanic Emilio (Daniel Zacapa) and lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann).
