ABC’s “The River” pilot lands Jeff Galfer & Leslie Hope

ABC has ordered a pilot for “The River” from the team responsible for Paranormal Activity. If you aren’t  familiar with the show or it’s premise yet, JoBlo has this plot synopsis:

The River centers on Tess, a world traveler and top-notch producer who, six months after her TV explorer husband Emmet Cole goes missing in the Amazon, receives a signal from his beacon. Convinced that Emmet is alive, Tess forces her reluctant son Lincoln to abandon his medical studies and lead a rescue expedition.”

The first thing that might come to mind when you think “team responsible for…Paranormal Activity” is whether or not it will be shot in “found footage” style.  The answer is yes.  At least we know the pilot will be.  Not sure about the entire series as of yet. 

The lastest actor to join the cast is Jeff Galfer  (click name for IMDB page) in the role of “Sammy”  I am not sure what is in store for this character as not many details of the show have been released as of yet.  Alongside Mr. Galfer on the cast will be Leslie Hope in the role of Tess Cole who judging by the last name of her character will be related to the lost TV reporter.
