Riverworld is a four-hour television movie, released on the Syfy channel on April 18, 2010. Based on the "Riverworld" books by Philip José Farmer, the made-for-TV movie is a reboot of the aborted Sci-Fi Channel Riverworld television series, of which only the pilot episode was produced.
When American war zone journalist Matt Ellman and his fiancée, Jessie Machalan, are killed in an explosion, Matt awakens, separated from Jessie, on the banks of a river snaking endlessly across a mysterious new plane of existence. On Riverworld, everyone who has ever lived on Earth, ever soul throughout time, has been reborn along the banks of a seemingly endless river. Determined to locate Jessie, Matt aligns with Tomoe, a 13th century female warrior, Allegra, a 15th century courtesan of shifting alliances, and American novelist and Riverboat captain Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain. With a full crew of adventurers, they embark upriver to understand where they are, why they are here, and to what unknowable end the river winds…Starring:
