Terra Nova

2012-01-24 10:34
The futuristic-prehistoric Terra Nova will chronicle the adventures and drama of the Shannon family who travel back in time 85 million years from the year 2149 where the overpopulated and polluted Earth is dying. As part of the so-called "Tenth Pilgrimage" the Shannons travel back to prehistoric times where dinosaurs roam the Earth to restart civilisation and a colony called Terra Nova. Things quickly go wrong and they get trapped "in this land of limitless beauty, mystery and terror".

These adventurers soon discover that this healthy, vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears," says the show description the lavish production issued that promises new dinosaurs – and some with feathers – in every episode.

"The areas surrounding Terra Nova are teeming with danger – and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety. The Shannons will come to suspect that not everyone on this mission has the same idea of how to best save mankind; in fact, there may be forces intent on destroying this new world before it even begins."

Terra Nova premieres on M-Net, DSTV Channel 101 on Wednesday 25 January 2012 at 20:30
