Meet the Cast of Fox's 'Terra Nova,' Steven Spielberg's Pricey New Sci-Fi Show (VIDEO)

Fox's 'Terra Nova' has made more headlines before premiering than most shows will snag in their entire TV life. Unfortunately, most of them have been about how insanely expensive the series has been to produce.

Fox's 'Terra Nova'

Some sites report that the pilot cost around $10 million, while other insiders claim that number is closer to $20 million. Either way, Fox realized that the Australia-based, Steven Spielberg-produced production -- complete with a large main cast and some prehistoric extras -- was an investment, which is why they've already ordered 13 episodes.

So what does $20 million (allegedly) buy you? The gorgeous sweeping landscapes of Australia are the perfect backdrop for this journey all the way back to dinosaur times. Yes, dinosaurs and people will be living together as humans from a not-so-happy future travel back 85 million years to recolonize.

No iPods, no cell phones, no TVs or modern-day luxuries -- but who needs technology to entertain you when there are ferocious beasts tracking you?



I caught up with the cast of 'Terra Nova,' including stars Jason O'Mara, Stephen Lang, Christine Adams, Mido Hamada and Shelley Conn, to get a glimpse into their archaic TV lives.

Take a look to find out what else to expect from the show, which will premiere later this fall.

What do you say: Is this a huge risk to take for one TV show? Or are you dying to see dinosaurs on TV each week? Take the debate to the comments.

PSYCHiATRY is a SCAM

20 million years they could develop tech to leave earth.
and did not want to try to change the future
so just left before the asteroid with no intention of coming back
lots of ways to explain 85 million years
one being obvious , machine they made created a rift that went back to that specific time and place
lots of sci fi movies make zero sense ; this one probably wil make little sense too.
then there is this other idea seriously oh we will only have 20 million years
thats a deal killer ?
but the time thing except for being impossible isnt a biggie

Maybe because humans would rather live in a pristine world that won't be destroyed for one million human lifetimes than stay in a world where life stinks and most will die soon? That makes perfect sense to me.

Again, THIS MAKES NO SENSE!!!

Why go back 85 million years to re-colonize when you know that in 20 million years an asteroid will strike the Yucatan Peninsula and wipe out all life on Earth???

This is a gaping plot hole that absolutely kills the show. Of course, I expect nothing else from the mind of Brannon Braga, who killed Star Trek on television.

This show is DOA, because the concept makes ZERO sense.
