We’re not surprised that Steven Spielberg’s latest television endeavor “Terra Nova” has been pushed back. The series has been one of the most talked about projects this year but it’s been hit with a string of bad luck. When the initial schedule for Fox’s fall 2010 line up was announced it was M.I.A, but expected to debut sometime during mid-season. Then it was pulled from Comic-Con because the show hadn’t gone into production yet and there was no footage. So who’s really shocked by this latest scheduling change?
Fox released a statement confirming that “Terra Nova” wouldn’t debut during the upcoming television season, instead it will be part of their fall 2011 line up. The good news to come out of this is that the network plans on airing a special preview in May to give audiences a taste of what’s to come. So you have to wait almost year until you see a glimpse of footage from the show and then another 3 months until you can watch the whole thing.
For those of you not familiar with “Terra Nova,” here’s the premise:
The show follows an ordinary family embarking on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a massive experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149 the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped, overcrowded and overpolluted. Knowing there is no way to reverse the damage to the planet, a coalition of scientists has managed to open up a fracture in the space-time continuum, creating a portal to prehistoric Earth. This doorway leads to an amazing world, one that allows for a last-ditch effort to save the human race…possibly changing the future by correcting the mistakes of the past.
The series comes from the minds of Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga and David Fury.
