The premiere episode of Fox’s Steven Spielberg-produced series “Terra Nova” has been delayed.
The plan was to debut the series pilot in May ahead of the rest of the season in the Fall. Now, in an official press release from the network late yesterday, its been confirmed the pilot will be pushed back to premiere in the Fall alongside most of the other network’s new season premieres.
Kevin Reilly, Fox Broadcasting’s President, says in a quote that the delay is directly due to the visual effects – “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.”
The Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi series follows a small group of humanity escaping to 85 million years in the past and forming a settlement in the forbidding land. These adventurers soon discover that this healthy, vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears, and it isn’t just the dinosaurs that are dangerous.
