The show is set in the year 2149 when all life on the planet Earth is being threatened with extinction. Scientists have opened a door allowing people to travel back to prehistoric times. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their children Josh and Maddy) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. However, they did not realize that they placed it in the middle of a group of carnivores.
Looks like it could be interesting. The reason it came to my attention is that the villain in the James Cameron blockbuster, AVATAR, - Stephen Lang, may have a big role in Terra Nova.
