What is this sci-fi book series called?

My professor recommended a sci-fi/fantasy trilogy to me and I forgot the name. He said it had also been made into a TV show and I believe the title was a few words long. I think it had the word water in the title. On the older side.

Basically about how after you died you went to this other planet that just had one long, concentrated, continuous river You would have to go along the river to get places. Everyone there was set to one communicative age. People from history interacted and sided with each other. He told me that Alexander the Great and Betsey Ross has a romance (lol). Eventually, some guy tries to break out of the planet.

If anyone has any idea what the book series/tv show is called it would be really helpful! I wanted to get it this weekend, and I won't be seeing him until thursday and it would be weird to e-mail about this. Thanks!
