In a story from Entertainment Weekly, Steven Spielberg could be helping Fox on Monday when the network announces its fall 2010 lineup in New York.

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.

Entertainment Weekly also picked up a script for Terra Nova which starts off in 2149 A.D. Here is what they wrote of the opening:

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.
