God has blessed me with a new television series on ABC, it's on Tuesday nights @ 9pm, called "The River".

There are nine series regulars and I am number six. I play Emillio Valenzuela, chief engineer on board the S.S. Magus. Some where on the Amazon, my daughter and I keep the engines, the generators, and everything below deck, working. I love you all. May "The River" run for no less than 4 seasons. Thank you Michael Green, Zack Estin, Oren Peli, Steven Speilberg and my ABC/Disney family.

Love forever Daniel Zacapa.
