CBS Highlights Organ Donation With New Show 'Three Rivers'
Date:10/2/2009

MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CBS's new drama "Three Rivers," will premiere on Sunday, October 4th at 9:00 EDT. The show is set in a Pittsburgh transplant hospital and will explore the emotionally complex world of organ donors, recipients and surgeons on a weekly basis.

Each episode is shot from the viewpoint of donation and transplant professionals, donors and recipients who converge at the conclusion of each show.

The drama was created by Carol Barbee, who stated in a press conference on July 31st, "We're dropping you into the world of the people involved and seeing what's at stake in their world and watching them get a resolution." The Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) applauds the extensive research conducted by CBS in consultation with experts in the donation and transplantation community to make this show as realistic as possible. The fact that the network reached out to organizations like Donate Life America and Donate Life Hollywood, and used the information provided, demonstrates CBS's commitment to accuracy.

Although most of "Three Rivers" is filmed from a transplant center's perspective, AOPO recognizes the staff of organ procurement organizations who work so diligently to facilitate the gift of life every day in the United States. Organ procurement organizations employ skilled workers who focus on: working with hospitals to coordinate the organ and tissue donation process, educating people of all faiths and cultures about donation; fostering donor designation; advocating for donor families; and, conducting aftercare initiatives and community services. Through these activities, member OPOs are committed to enhancing the quality, effectiveness and
