Our New Zealander ally, Tehanu of
theonering.net sent us the following:
I heard this from one of the stuntmen in LOTR; I asked him what he
knew about Riverworld in NZ:
"Yes, I can confirm that Riverworld is being filmed in
Auckland. A pilot was shot during December & I haven't heard yet
whether the series has been given the go-ahead, but was rumoured to
commence early this year."
Another big ol' thanks to Tehanu for the info!
