Spielberg’s Dinosaur Epic Terra Nova Preview
Back in June we showed you the trailer to the 20th Century Fox’s much-anticipated TV series Terra Nova, from Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga, René Echevarria and Aaron Kaplan. The series will launch with a two hour special on Sky 1 HD in October within days of its US launch.
We caught a preview of the first episode at the Empire Big Screen, Terra Nova follows an ordinary family from the year 2149. The world is dying and the planet is over developed and over crowded. Resources are stretched and the majority of plant and animal life are extinct. There’s hope, however, as scientists unexpectedly discover a fracture in time that make it possible for people to travel into primeval history. Settlers have been chosen to go back in time to rebuild civilisation and get it right this time.
The Shannon family join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to this unknown paradise. Jim Shannon (Jason O’Mara, Life on Mars), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family through this new world of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. Jim’s wife, Elisabeth Shannon (Shelley Conn, Mistresses, Strike Back), is a trauma surgeon and the newest addition to TERRA NOVA’s medical team. Josh Shannon (Landon Liboiron, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Life Unexpected) is their 17-year-old son who is angry to leave life as he knows it behind; upon arriving at the settlement, he finds himself instantly drawn to the beautiful and rule-breaking Skye (Allison Miller, 17 Again, Blood: The Vampire). Maddy Shannon (Naomi Scott, Life Bites), Josh’s endearingly awkward 15-year-old sister, hopes Terra Nova will give her a new chance to reinvent herself. Although Elisabeth’s medical training secured the family a spot on the pilgrimage, a secret involving their adorable five-year-old daughter, Zoe (newcomer Alana Mansour), soon endangers their place in this utopia.
Life in Terra Nova is not as idyllic as it initially appears. Despite the blue skies, the towering waterfalls, the lush vegetation, the surroundings are filled with danger and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety. Terra Nova is set to be an addictive series full of CGI, secrets, twists, drama and visual feasts.
