Fox Pushes Back Premiere of ‘Terra Nova’

Terra Nova is the Steven Spielberg produced prehistoric drama series.  It was due out via a sneak peek in May, but TV Line is reporting that the network is pushing back the premiere of the show.

Turns out that the heavy use of visual effects in Terra Nova for the dinosaur terrorizing drama would seem to have incurred more of a time lag on production than first expected.

Fox says that the show is one of the most ambitious efforts for a TV series and they need more lead time.

I’m a bit confused what with how much timing and plotting goes into things but hey, it is what it is.  And if it’s has expensive… expansive as it seems, they must have a lot of faith in the show that it will draw in the viewers to satisfy the advertisers.

We’ll see

About the 2011 TV series Terra Nova:

The show “Centers on the Shannons, an ordinary family from 2149 when the planet is dying who are 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.”

The cast includes Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, and Stephen Lang amongst many.

Directed by Alex Graves (Journeyman, The West Wing) and writing credits include Alan Loeb (The Switch, Wall Street 2), Kelly Marcel & Craig Silverstein (Nikita, Bones, K-Ville), it definitely looks like they’ve stacked the creative forces behind the pilot.
