Groups of people have been recruited to travel into the past and form a colony in order to reboot the planet and save the future. That is the basic premise of the new series Terra Nova, which premiered on the Fox Network on September 26th, 2011. The show stars Jason O’Mara (who you may remember from the short-lived ABC series Life on Mars) as Jim Shannon, an ex-cop who escapes prison in order to follow his family to the late Cretaceous period and start a new life."
