Net­flix aban­dons talks to re­vive ‘Terra Nova’

The Washington Times Daily - - Television -

“Terra Nova” of­fi­cially is ex­tinct, at least with Net­flix.

Just weeks af­ter the com­pany expressed in­ter­est in pick­ing up the re­cently can­celed Fox di­nosaur drama, the stream­ing ser­vice has opted to pass on sal­vaging the se­ries, the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter has learned, as Net­flix and “Terra Nova” stu­dio 20th Tele­vi­sion were un­able to come to terms to re­vive the se­ries.

Net­flix’s name first sur­faced early this month af­ter Fox can­celed the pricey drama from ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Steven Spiel­berg and 20th Tele­vi­sion, but talks ul­ti­mately broke down.

De­spite in­ter­na­tional ap­peal for the se­ries, which starred Ja­son O’mara and Stephen Lang, Fox can­celed “Terra Nova” in early March af­ter spend­ing an es­ti­mated $10 mil­lion to $20 mil­lion on its twicede­layed two-hour pre­miere, with 20th Tele­vi­sion an­nounc­ing it would shop the se­ries else­where.
