Allison Miller (17 Again, “Kings”) has joined Jason O’Mara in Fox’s “Terra Nova,” the upcoming series from Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga and David Fury. A special preview of the show will air in May before the series premieres in the fall of 2011.
“Terra Nova,” an epic family adventure 85 million years in the making, follows an ordinary family embarking on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a massive experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149 the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped, overcrowded and overpolluted. Knowing there is no way to reverse the damage to the planet, a coalition of scientists has managed to open up a fracture in the space-time continuum, creating a portal to prehistoric Earth. This doorway leads to an amazing world, one that allows for a last-ditch effort to save the human race…possibly changing the future by correcting the mistakes of the past.
Miller will star as Skye, a veteran Terra Nova resident who takes O’Mara’s character’s son under her wing.
“Terra Nova” is also executive produced by Jon Cassar, Aaron Kaplan, Katherine Pope, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Craig Silverstein and Kelly Marcel. Alex Graves is directing the pilot.
