“The show begins in the year 2149, a time when all life on planet Earth is threatened with extinction due to dwindling worldwide air quality. In an effort to save the human race, scientists develop a portal allowing travel 85 million years back in time to prehistoric Earth. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their three children Josh, Maddy and Zoe) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. However, they are unaware that the colony is in the middle of a group of carnivorous dinosaurs.”
But it isn’t a movie: Terra Nova is actually a new science-fiction TV series that premiere on Fox this fall.
