Fox pushes back 'Terra Nova' to fall
Fox is pushing back the premiere of Steven Spielberg’s dino drama Terra Nova — again!
Instead of launching with a May 23 preview as originally planned, the adventure series will now debut next fall.
The decision comes after Fox teased the series with an ad during the Super Bowl last month. Explained Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly:
“Terra Nova is one of the most ambitious television series ever produced,” Reilly said. “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 groundbreaking work.”
“The world of Terra Nova is visually stunning on multiple levels, and effects play an enormous part,” added executive producer René Echevarria. “Premiering in the fall will give us the proper time to create a world never before seen on television.”
Terra Nova: It’s so amazing, we can’t even make it!
The drama was originally set to premiere midseason. In August, Fox pushed back the bulk of the show until fall, electing to air just a two-hour preview in May (like the way the network launched Glee).
