According to sources, Steven Spielberg, who is producing Fox's Terra Nova, has taped a special introductory message that is going to "be presented to advertisers if the network orders the show to series."
Terra Nova focuses on a family 100 years into the future that goes back to the prehistoric era.
It also looks like Fox is going to commit to 13-episodes of the show. It should shoot in Hawaii later this summer.
The scene: a large group of settlers are preparing to leave the apocalyptic world they live in to time travel back millions of years via a massive, high-tech contraption. Their goal is to see trees, enjoy a blue sky, eat real food - basically, to start over in this so-called Eden. But what they find is unlike anything they were expecting.
