Fox Upfronts 2011: Terra Nova

Fox have been unveiling a whole host of trailers for new shows at their annual upfront presentation.  We’ve picked a selection of our favourites to showcase on the blog.

First up….Terra Nova.  This is a Spielberg produced series that looks a bit like a cross between Jurassic Park and Lost.  It’s set in the year 2149, where Earth is facing extinction.  Scientists have developed a way for people to travel back in time millions of years to prehistoric Earth presumably so they can live happily ever after….but things are not as they seem, and before long it goes all ‘Jurassic’ and a colony of hungry dinosaurs turn up to ruin the party.

The lead cast are a family of 5 headed up by Jim Shannon played by Jason O’ Mara (he was in Resident Evil, and also played Sam Tyler in the US remake of  Life on Mars) – based on the trailer I think we can assume he has some sort of mysterious or shady back story.  British actress Shelley Conn (Marchlands, Mistresses, Dead Set) plays his wife Elizabeth, and they are joined by their 3 children Josh (Landon Liboiron), Maddy (Naomi Scott) and Zoe (Alana Mansour).
