Fox has pushed the premiere of its new Steven Spielberg-produced series, Terra Nova, to fall.
The first episode of Terra Nova was originally set to premiere May 23 with intentions of being a preview of the pre-historic times set drama. Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly notes that the sole reason for the push-back is to have more time to work on the visual effects of the show [which is key for a show depicting a setting such as this one].
“Terra Nova is one of the most ambitious television series ever produced,” Reilly stated in a press release. “The cutting-edge visual effects used to create the world of Terra Nova, which is of massive scope and scale, require more time to be realized. This aspect of the series is essential, so we are pushing back the special early preview date to give the visual effects team the time needed for their ground-breaking work.”
Jason O’Mara will star in the leading role as the patriarch of a family who escape the overpopulation of Earth and travel through a crack in the space-time continuum, leading to a pre-historic Earth. Stephen Lang and Shelley Conn also star.
