The River is an American paranormal/action/horror/found-footage television series. Famed explorer Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) went looking for “magic” deep in the uncharted Amazon basin 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, 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, Lincoln reluctantly joins her on a search for his father.
