First Photos from Steven Spielberg’s Time Travel TV Series TERRA NOVA

     January 6, 2011

Though a canceled Comic-Con panel for Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova stirred the pot of skepticism, we now have our first official look at Steven Spielberg’s time travel and dinosaur filled TV series Terra Nova. There’s guns being fired and a general sense of danger and adventure featuring Jason O’Mara as Jim Shannon trying to protect the rest of his family who have found themselves traveling back in time to a paradisiacal era where dinosaurs roam the Earth. Obviously, this isn’t a Land of the Lost scenario though since there are clearly military forces somehow involved, but you can see that for yourself in the pictures below along with the official synopsis just to refresh your mind.  Hit the jump for the synopsis and pics:

Hopefully we’ll get our first look at Avatar villain Stephen Lang sometime in the near future since Terra Nova is set to have a sneak preview in May followed by the official series premiere later this fall. But for now here are the four new photos from Terra Nova courtesy of Spoiler TV.

Official Synopsis: The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to TERRA NOVA, the first colony of humans in this second chance for civilization. JIM SHANNON (O’Mara), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family – wife ELISABETH and children JOSH and MADDY – through this new land of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. In addition to blue skies, rolling rivers and lush vegetation, TERRA NOVA offers new opportunities and fresh beginnings to its recent arrivals, but the Shannons have brought with them a famial secret that may threaten their citizenship in this utopia. These adventurers soon discover that this healthy, vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears. The areas surrounding TERRA NOVA are filled with dangerous dinosaurs and other prehistoric threats, as well as external forces that may be intent on destroying this new world before it begins.
