Discovery has greenlit “Rivers of No Return,” which follows this tight-knit community of homesteaders who rely on themselves, the help of their neighbors and a seasoned set of survival skills to endure challenging and isolating winters, in order to remobilize their extraordinary lives in the stunning, remote wilderness come spring.
The logline: In the Frank Church Wilderness, those who occupy the land must abide by a strict code of conduct: no motors outside of your property, respect thy neighbor, and leave no trace. The only means of transport and accessing supplies are by way of the largest un-dammed river in North America, the Salmon River, commonly referred to as “The River of No Return.” The river is so challenging to navigate it was once described by Lewis and Clark as “foaming and roaring through rocks in every direction, so as to render the passage of anything impossible.”
“River of No Return” is produced for Discovery Channel by Spoke Studios, a Wheelhouse Entertainment company, in association with ITV America and Inspired Entertainment. Brent Montgomery, Ed Simpson, Joe Weinstock, Will Nothacker, Jason Carey, John Gray and Dirk Gibson serve as executive producers with Sean Stack serving as co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Michael Gara is executive producer and Greg Wolf is coordinating producer.
