Promo Photos – sorry none with Laura- but plenty with Tahmoh- one looking very much like he did on Smallville when he was a dead soldier being used by Lex- hmmm- he is dead here too- do I sense a theme going on?
Matt, an American journalist, and his fiance, Jessie, are killed in an explosion, but reawaken in a very unusual after life a mysterious planet with an endless river terrain. Everyone who has ever lived on Earth has been resurrected simultaneously in this strange new world. Determined to find Jessie, Matt joins forces with an intrepid crew including a 13th century female warrior and Riverboat captain Mark Twain. Embarking upriver, their adventure begins, all the while tracked by the watchful eye of a mysterious alien force.
