After a famously rocky production history, which saw the show’s premiere pushed back time and time again, Fox’s Terra Nova is finally set to premiere September 26. On Saturday, Comic-Con attendees got the first good look at the series, when Fox showed the first half of the series’ two-hour pilot during a presentation about the show. Afterward, executive producers Rene Echevarria, Brannon Braga, and Jose Molina, plus star Stephen Lang, held a brief panel talking about their work on the show.

The Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi series takes place both many years in the future and many, many years in the past: In the year 2149, Earth is dying thanks to centuries of pollution and overdevelopment. The best hope for the human race is an experimental colony called Terra Nova, located in prehistoric (read: dinosaur) times. Jason O’Mara stars as Jim Shannon, the head of a family selected to join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to the new land. Shelley Conn, Landon Liboiron, Naomi Scott, and Alana Mansour fill out the rest of the family; Christine Adams and Lang also star.

Fox showed roughly the first fifty minutes of Terra Nova, enough for us to get a good taste. How did it look? Were the delays worth it? Do the dinosaurs look good? Does O’Mara take off his shirt? Hit the jump for answers to those question and a review of the footage, plus highlights from the panel.

New ‘Terra Nova’ Promo Welcomes You to Paradise

Fox may have moved the Terra Nova premiere date from May to an as-yet-unannounced date in the fall, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be getting any glimpses of the show between now and then. The network has just released another new promo for its time-traveling sci fi series, presumably to give us a hint at exactly what kind of fancy special effects this extra time is buying.

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.

There may be some unreasonable expectations placed on the shoulders of Terra Nova, the new Fox show about a family that travels back in time to a prehistoric colony. Steven Spielberg‘s name is in the credits and the show features time travel and dinosaurs, so there is a natural tendency to expect it to somehow stack up against his theatrical efforts.

So check out this new teaser for the show, which shows Stephen Lang in full-on bearded leader mode, but more importantly gives a very toothy peek into the maw of one of the show’s dinosaurs. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Fox’s much anticipated sci-fi series Terra Nova, produced by Steven Spielberg, just suffered another set back. Reports are coming in that most of the writing staff on the show – which was delayed until Fall 2011 – was laid off this week. Show-runner Brandon Braga wasn’t let go though and apparently the layoffs could be temporary. They could either be due to a scheduling conflict or because the show needs to cut costs and having a bunch of writers sitting around when production doesn’t start until next summer isn’t cost effective. Either way, this is just another fascinating chapter in the story of a show that has had a very public behind the scenes life ever since it hit our radar. Centering on a family from the future who is sent into prehistoric times to save the world, there’s nothing but potential there. There’s much more info after the jump. Read More »
