Overview

Killed along with his fiancé Jessie (Laura Vandervoort) in a nightclub suicide bombing, American journalist Matt Ellman (Tahmoh Penikett) washes ashore in new world populated by everyone who has ever died on Earth in this fantasy miniseries adapted from the books by author Philip Jose Farmer. Now, in this strange new land, Matt's only goal is to find the woman he loves, and spend eternity with her. Along the way, the befuddled wanderer climbs aboard a riverboat piloted by celebrated American author Mark Twain (Mark Deklin), and joins forces with a fierce female warrior named Tomoe (Jeananne Goossen), who hails from the 13th Century. The further the group travels up the massive river they emerged from, the more apparent it becomes that an extraterrestrial entity is tracking their every move.
