Go big or go home, they say!
By now, you know that Steven Spielberg is helming a new futuristic TV drama called Terra Nova. It's not poised to release until next year or possibly even the year after that, but even still, the show is getting a lot of buzz. However, sources are reporting that even though the show has yet to start filming, the show is already $10 million over budget!
Um, say what?!
According to sources, FOX has picked up 13 episodes of the massive show, including a two-hour pilot, which alone is accounting for $20 million to produce!
Wowza! Now figure, that's with only two people making the cast list thus far (Life on Mars' Jason O'Mara and Avatar's Stephen Lang) and not an inch of film in the can. That's insane.
This better be worth the money Steven is throwing down! (Then again, he probably blinks and makes a million dollars, so it might not be such a big deal for him!)
Are U looking forward to this new show?

We can only hope the theme song will be half as good as the Jurassic Park theme.
Steven Spielberg’s new project, Terra Nova, is a high-budget TV series where scientists will travel through time to the world of the dinosaurs.
The series will be shot in southeast Queensland, Australia, at a budget of a mere $4 million per episode.
We’re definitely intrigued, although this seems like the type of project that might be better suited for a larger screen.
Will U buy a gargantuan TV to watch Spielberg’s new show?

All you nerds who were looking forward to seeing Steven Spielberg's version of Land of The Lost are just going to have to stick to watching the Will Ferrell version while huffing fumes a bit longer.
FOX has decided to bump Spielberg's dramasaurus show Terra Nova until May. Seems FOX is taking a play out of the Glee handbook, premiering the pilot episode sometime in May (probably after Idol) and then holding off all summer to air the rest of the season.
