One thing from today's FOX TCA Summer Press Tour executive session that I think deserves mentioning in a separate article.
FOX has pushed its new dinosaur adventure drama "Terra Nova" to the fall of 2011. The sheer scope and dimension of the production called for it, FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly explained today.
“It was mainly due to the scope [Terra Nova] was going to take. We went into it knowing it was going to be ambitious. It really became apparent that we had to do this show right. We’ll have an enormous jump on the pilot, and on the marketing side, we’ll let people understand the show.” He went on to say: ""'Terra Nova' will be on the of the most visually stimulating and dramatically grand series to air on network television. It deserves to have an equally unique launch to distinguish that the show is unlike any other, and its spring promotional platform will give us the perfect opportunity to introduce this bold show to audiences."
Producers are currently scouting locations for the shoot which is set for October. Jason O'Mara ("Life On Mars") will star as Jim Shannon, who takes his family back in time, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Casting for other key roles is underway.
The show will get a preview next May, with the first season beginning in the fall, which is the same way "Glee" was launched last year.
