Highlight Story

Steven Spielberg's big budget dinosaur series Terra Nova has been cancelled after just one season. But The Hollywood Reporter reports that 20th Century Fox TV will try to sell it to other networks.

"The big budget dinosaur series averaged 7.5 million viewers in the US but failed to do as well as hoped. After the premiere was delayed twice, the series finally made it to air in September but got a lukewarm reception from some fans and critics," reports BBC.

Terra Nova, centers on the Shannons, an ordinary family from 2149 when the planet is dying who are transported back 85 million years to prehistoric Earth where they join Terra Nova, a colony of humans with a second chance to build a civilization.

The TV series starred Jason O'Mara, Stephen Lang, Christine Adams and Shelley Conn.

Spielberg's most recent big screen outing, War Horse, was nominated for five Oscars but failed to win any statuettes.
