Alex O’Loughlin in Three Rivers VIDEO
The closer we get to Fall, the closer we get to new network television shows. Today, we’re going to take a little look at a new doctor drama, Three Rivers, starring Alex O’Loughlin. (Alex is also co-starring in the movie The Back Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez)
Three Rivers goes inside the emotionally complex lives of organ donors, the recipients and the surgeons that make it all happen. Actors Alex O’Loughlin and Katherine Moennig star as part of the elite surgical team that – in addition to being doctors – must deal with donor families in their darkest hour, while managing the fears and concerns of apprehensive recipients.
Alex O’Loughlin plays Dr. Andy Yablonski, a workaholic leading the surgical team, whose good-natured personality and sarcastic wit makes him popular with his patients and colleagues. Each story is told from the point of view of the doctors, the recipients and the donors.
Three Rivers premieres Sunday, October 4th on CBS. You can view the preview and an interview with Alex O’Loughlin here.
I see billboards for this show everywhere when I go to Los Angeles! And the idea of doing a show JUST on organ donors and the doctors is a great spin on the “Doctor Drama” we all know so well. It’s not just sick patients and finding a cure.
So what do you think? Going to tune in on October 4th?
