The Rivers of Life series is the story of the life and love of actor and TV star Sam Sharpe.
The series follows Sam’s relationship with his father and his love for his sister, River.
The series has been a smash hit in Australia, with viewers seeing Sharpe perform on stage, in front of crowds, and in movies.
The River of Tears series, which has been nominated for five Emmys, will be aired on the Channel Nine network in the US in the spring.
“It’s about the heart,” Sharpe said.
“I love that we’re all about the love of the human spirit.
I love the human connection and I love people, the people I meet.”AAP/ABC
