The American Broadcasters Fox have an ambitious line up for the Autumn but the big one is Terra Nova.
The show centers on the Shannons, an ordinary family from 2149 when Earth is an overdeveloped and overcrowded dying planet. They’re transported back 85 million years to prehistoric Earth where they join Terra Nova, a colony of humans with a second chance to build a civilization.
Exec Produced by Stephen Spielberg, Terra Nova stars Jason O’Mara, Shelley Conn, Stephen Lang, Christine Adams, Landon Liboiron and Allison Miller.
The ambitious pilot sees the characters firmly in the midst of prehistoric dinosaurs so expect a wealth of visual effects and stunning digital imagery. Only the pilot has been announced for a US airing so far but we predict it won’t be too long before this is extended to a full series and sent towards us across the pond.
Other eagerly awaited shows from Fox are J.J. Abrams’ new show – Alcatraz (featuring Lost alum Jorge Garcia) and New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel.
