Paranormal Activity Team Turns Its Attention To TV

The River will feature mock “found-footage” from a doomed Amazon expedition

Paranormal Activity writer/director Oren Peli and Paranormal 2 screenwriter Michael R Perry are creating a TV show called The River for Dreamworks TV and ABC Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter .

Unashamedly riffing off of Paranormal Activity ’s shooting style, The River is about the search for someone who went missing while on expedition down the Amazon, using the “found-video footage” format. Kind of Blair Witch meets The Creature From The Black Lagoon , then (in fact, wouldn’t it be great if the Gill Man did put in a cameo?).
