TERRA NOVA Removed From 2010 San Diego Comic Con Schedule

     July 13, 2010


Another one bites the dust. Terra Nova, the upcoming Fox sci-fi show produced by Steven Spielberg, has been removed from the schedule for San Diego Comic Con.  It’s the second panel to suffer this fate after Piranha 3D, which was removed because the footage was deemed too violent.

No official reason was given for the removal but sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the main reason is there isn’t enough footage ready to warrant the panel. That’s the same reason obvious shows like HBO’s Game of Thrones and Torchwood don’t have representation this year.

Terra Nova, which is set to be a mid-season replacement in 2011, stars Jason O’Mara (the Life on Mars remake) as a man whose family lives on a dying earth where people are traveling back in time to survive and end up surrounded by dinosaurs. Think Stargate meets Jurassic Park and An Inconvenient Truth.
