Dublin native Jason O’Mara is finalizing a deal to star in ‘Terra
Nova,’ the prehistoric-flavored action-drama Steven Spielberg is executive-producing for Fox.

Fox’s
Fall Schedule: ‘Glee’s On the Move, ‘Idol’ Fixes And More

‘Terra Nova’ is centered on the Shannons, a circa-2149 family that is
sent way, way, way back in time – some 85 meeeelion years – in
a desperate bid to save the future of humanity.
O’Mara (’Life On Mars,’ ‘In Justice’) will play Jim Shannon, the
family’s patriarch who has a checkered past. Though seriously, if you
want to talk checkered pasts, have a word with any randomly selected
velociraptor.

Check out the full fall schedules
for ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW

Fox and Spielberg (appearing via video) teased ‘Terra Nova’ at last
month’s upfronts, regaling reporters with their vision and the scope of
the series, punctuated by some impressive artists’ renderings of how the
show (and it’s controversially colorful dinosaurs) might look.
Due to the enormous production design and CGI what not involved in
bringing the series to life, Fox billed it as a “midseason” offering yet
left the door open for a possibly later bow.

....comes an epic family
adventure 85 million years in the making. TERRA NOVA follows an
ordinary family embarking on an incredible journey back in time to
prehistoric Earth as a small part of a massive experiment to save the
human race. In the year 2149 the world is dying. The planet is
overdeveloped, overcrowded and overpolluted. With the majority of plant
and animal life extinct, devotion to science has brought mankind to the
brink of destruction, but has also provided its only hope for salvation.
Knowing there is no way to reverse the damage to the planet, a
coalition of scientists has managed to open up a fracture in the
space-time continuum, creating a portal to prehistoric Earth. This
doorway leads to an amazing world, one that allows for a last-ditch
effort to save the human race...possibly changing the future by
correcting the mistakes of the past. The series centers on the Shannon
family as they join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to TERRA NOVA, the
first colony of humans in this second chance for civilization. JIM
SHANNON, a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family
through this new land of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. Jim's
wife, ELISABETH SHANNON, is a trauma surgeon chosen through a global
lottery as a new addition to Terra Nova's medical team. JOSH SHANNON is
their son, mourning the girl he left behind, as he's torn between two
role models - his father and the charismatic COMMANDER FRANK TAYLOR, the
leader of the settlement, and the heroic first pioneer through the time
portal. MADDY SHANNON, Jim and Elizabeth's teen daughter, is as
independent and adventurous as her parents, but her distrust of
authority soon leads her on a dangerous path. In addition to blue skies,
rolling rivers and lush vegetation, TERRA NOVA offers new opportunities
and fresh beginnings to its recent arrivals, but the Shannons have
brought with them a familial secret that may threaten their citizenship
in this utopia. Additionally these adventurers soon discover that this
healthy, cptfc vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears.
The areas surrounding Terra Nova are filled with dangerous dinosaurs,
and other prehistoric threats, as well as external forces that may be
intent on destroying this new world before it begins. But perhaps even
more threatening than what lies outside the protective walls is the
Shannons' realization that something sinister may be happening inside
TERRA NOVA as not everyone on this mission has the same intentions of how best to save mankind.
