FOX's highly anticipated "Terra Nova" from executive producer Steven Spielberg is finally making its way to TV beginning Monday, September 26, and we have new secrets from the set!
In "Terra Nova," the world is threatened with extinction in the year 2149. After discovering a rift in time, a family and other settlers travel back 85 million years to the Cretaceous period (not the Jurassic era, FYI) to start a brand-new life. Of course, there are plenty of dinosaurs to make life interesting…
The big-budget show (production for the two-hour premiere has been pegged at $10-$20 million) is filmed on location in Australia, and 'Avatar' baddie Stephen Lang plays Commander Nathaniel Taylor, an intrepid paramilitary man who is the first to colonize the dangerous wilds of prehistoric Earth. He was Spielberg's first choice to play the part, and what Spielberg wants, Spielberg gets.
The show also stars Shelley Conn, Jason O'Mara, Allison Miller, Christine Adams, Landon Liboiron, Naomi Scott and Alana Mansour, and The Hollywood Reporter assembled the cast for a special, exclusive cover shoot, which you can check it out HERE along with exclusive, never-before-seen photos from the shoot.
As for the dino stars, don't expect to see a T-rex running around, because "Terra Nova" takes place in a different era. The pilot will feature a Brachiosuarus and a Carnotaurus, and producers promise there will be at least one dinosaur per show. Cool!
