Produced by Steven Spielberg and set 85 million years ago when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, Terra Nova had decent but not spectacular ratings. Fox could have gone either way with the series, but ultimately chose not to go forward with season two and instead will be shopping the series to other networks. The show’s huge budget may stop other networks from taking a chance on Terra Nova, despite Spielberg’s involvement and the support of the series’ 7.5 million viewers.
Shot in Australia, Terra Nova premiered on September 26, 2011 to 9.2 million viewers. The series followed the Shannon family as they traveled back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a massive experiment to save the human race.
