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

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 9th 2011 6:00PM
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.

Heroes: Hysterical Blindness

Heroes - Hayden Panettiere
(S04E05)
I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but sometimes I wonder if we don't have more people reading TV Squad than Heroes has viewers. And so I want to keep reminding fallen fans who may have jumped ship over the past two not-so-great seasons that things are going much better this season.

There's a better balance in each episode than there's been. In the past few weeks, we've been sticking to mostly three storylines per week. This time around, we checked in on Peter, Claire and Sylar (after his unearthing last week). They're allowing the characters room to breathe and be themselves, rather than just rushing into the next adventure.

It was character growth and development that I'd missed the most, and we're finally getting it. Zachary Quinto was fantastic this episode, and even Hayden Panettiere showed an inkling of range. Oh, who am I kidding, she was as wooden as ever, but that's why we like her ... right? That kind of looks like a cardboard cut-out up there, doesn't it?
