Coming Midseason from FOX: Terra Nova

©2010 Fox Broadcasting Co. CR: FOX

Fox is home to two of my current favorite shows – Fringe and Human Target. Now, they’re bringing us something else to look forward to…

In a new twist on future colonization to save humanity, Terra Nova goes prehistoric. Most scifi adventures concentrate sending their colonies efforts to distant planets. These scientists are sending theirs back in time.

Executive producers Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: Enterprise) and David Fury (Lost) are bringing Terra Nova to Fox. Terra Nova will follow a family that travels back in time to prehistoric Earth, in order to save humanity. In 2149, Earth is at its end. But scientists have opened a portal to prehistoric times, hoping that settlers can correct the mistakes of the past. The Shannon family joins these settlers in Terra Nova, a new civilization in the distant past.

More from the press release:
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, Elizabeth 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, 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.

New Conspiracy Thriller Premiers Tonight on AMC: Rubicon

AMC’ newest original drama series, Rubicon, is a conspiracy thriller starring James Badge Dale as an analyst at a New York City-based federal intelligence agency who is thrown into a story where nothing is as it appears to be. The one-hour, 13-episode weekly series premieres tonight at 8/7c.

Rubicon is an incredible story about trust and power born out of the desire to find a way to capture the intensity and mystery of the best conspiracy thrillers in a series. It is a show that appeals to everyone who has some skepticism about the relationship between big business and our government, which we think is pretty much everybody,” said Joel Stillerman, SVP of original programming, production and digital content for AMC. “Our stellar cast and creative team allow us to continue to present premium television on basic cable.”

The series cast includes James Badge Dale, Oscar®-nominated actress Miranda Richardson, Dallas Roberts, Jessica Collins, Christopher Evan Welch, Lauren Hodges, and Arliss Howard.
