It’s been a rough several months for Terra Nova, the highly anticipated Steven Spielberg-produced Fox series, and it looks like we’re not quite out of the woods yet. The network recently announced that it has moved the series premiere date from May 2011 to fall 2011. The series stars Jason O’Mara (Life on Mars) as the head of a 22nd century family sent back in time to live in a prehistoric colony called Terra Nova. More details after the jump.

The last bits of casting are coming together for Terra Nova, the Fox show about a time-traveling family that is being exec produced by Steven Spielberg. For months we’ve known that Jason O’Mara would be the lead actor, as the father of a family that goes back in time to prehistoric Earth, and that Stephen Lang would play the military leader of the Terra Nova settlement they find upon arrival. The new casting is after the break. Read More »

When the show was bumped from an announced panel at Comic-Con, we should have known something was up. The Steven Spielberg-produced Fox sci-fi television series Terra Nova has been delayed. Fox said today that the pilot episode won’t be ready until May 2011, back from the originally discussed Winter 2010 debut. Even worse, the actual series won’t premiere until Fall 2011. I’m assuming they’ll do a sneak preview of the pilot episode during next year’s Comic-Con, and maybe a wide sneak preview online or at a special date/time.

Briefly: Terra Nova, the upcoming Fox show that has Steven Spielberg as an exec producer, was originally going to be unveiled at an upcoming panel during the San Diego Comic Con. That will no longer happen. Why? The reason is pretty prosaic: the show doesn’t begin production until September, so there is no footage to deliver. At this point the show isn’t even fully cast; Jason O’Mara is the only name we know is in the cast.
Without footage, the panel would have to be built on revelations about the story and ‘ongoing mythology’ of the show, which the writers don’t want to cough up. EW relates that producer David Fury says “If we talk about the more interesting aspects of the show now, we’re afraid we’ll ruin the surprise for the audience. In this case, everything is moving along steadily, the script has been well-received. We just don’t have anything to wow anyone with. It’s still in the preliminary stage, It’s a huge undertaking.”
But Fury is happy to tease a few details of the show, which follows a family from 100 years in Earth’s future back into a prehistoric era. “There will be dinosaurs that have never been seen before…They’ve learned so much since the days of Jurassic Park.”
There has been a lot of talk about this over the past couple weeks, but now its official: Julia Stiles is part of the cast of Dexter‘s fifth season on Showtime. When originally rumored, there was no info on her role. Showtime’s official statement says she’ll appear in ten episodes of the next season as ” a mysterious young woman who forms a unique relationship with Dexter (Michael C. Hall) in the wake of” the end of the fourth season. I edited a season four spoiler out of that line, but if you’ve been following the show you can mentally insert the relevant info. [Deadline]
After the break, Iron Man 2 writer Justin Theroux gets Wanderlust, and Spielberg’s TV series Terra Nova may have a lead actor. Read More »
