From Deadline:

Another interesting location switch, which had been pre-determined early in the pilot process – ABC/ABC Studios’ new horror drama The River, whose pilot was shot in Puerto Rico shortly after the territory implemented a filming tax incentive program, to Hawaii where ABC Studios plans to use some of the production infrastructure and facilities built for the studio’s long-running drama Lost.

“The River,” an ABC television show described as an adventure-mystery set in the Amazon jungle, is relocating production to Hawaii, network representatives said yesterday.

The pilot episode for the show, which stars Bruce Greenwood as a wildlife expert and TV host who goes missing, was shot in Puerto Rico, but plans to move to Hawaii had been rumored since March. A network spokesperson confirmed the relocation today, adding that shooting will begin in August with the series premiere scheduled for mid-season.
