Steven Spielberg To Bring Dinosaurs To Fox

Fox is hoping that Steven Spielberg can recreate some of his "Jurassic Park" magic for television.

The network has recruited Spielberg and Peter Chernin to helm a very ambitious new television series called, "Terra Nova," which will follow the exploits of a family from 100 years in the future, that travels back in time to the age of dinosaurs.

Reportedly Fox Entertainment chairman Peter Rice is so enamoured with "Terra Nova" that he is ready to give the series the green-light without even shooting a pilot.

The series, which will be co-written by Craig Silverstein and British scribe Kelly Marcel, had been shopped around the UK for some time before Rice got wind of it from Aaron Kaplan, the former chief of WMA TV.

It isn't too surprising that networks in the UK turned their noses up at an effects heavy series with dinosaurs, with ITV having trouble keeping the expensive, yet very successful, "Primeval", afloat.

It is believed that CBS also had a strong interest in developing "Terra Nova" for an American audience, but ultimately Rice and Fox pulled out all the stops to secure the rights.

At this point, there has been no formal word yet, but rumors indicate that Silverstein, Marcel, Kaplan, Spielberg and Chernin will all serve as executive producers on the series.


From the sounds of it, "Terra Nova" sounds like a modern take on "Land of the Lost" or "Valley of the Dinosaurs", which means that if the show has even a half-way decent story to it, success should be in the cards.

Hey, everybody loves dinosaurs!
