If you like the show “Lost,” or TNT’s “The Closer,” you’re going to find this new show on ABC to be amazing. From Executive Producer, Steven Spielberg, comes “The River,” Premiering February 7th on ABC, should make for great conversation near the water cooler at work. Entertainment Weekly, great magazine company here in the city provided tickets for the screening which took place at the Land Mark Theater, Lower East Side of Manhattan this past Thursday.
A little bit about the story; a DR. of nature goes missing on a boating trip along the Amazon River and his family is contemplating if he died. After deciding to start searching, the DR.’s wife, their only son along with friends and a TV production company (24-hr filming footage for TV shows) made the trek to the area where the boat could possibly be. Traveling along the Amazon, using GPS device, the “Magnus,” name of the boat, was located and upon discovery, the boat and its crew were missing aboard and that’s when it got really interested. The storyline is amazing; constantly leaving you on the edge wondering what is going to happen next.
I totally enjoyed the 2 screened episodes and now I’m ready to start watching in 2 weeks. “The River,” is going to be a hit! I’m ready!
