Also starring Stephen Lang and Allison Miller Premise: Former Chicago cop Jim Shannon (O'Mara), his doctor wife and three kids travel from the year 2149 through a crack in the space-time continuum 85 million years in the past to Terra Nova, a settlement designed to give humanity a fresh lease on life. Produced by Steven Spielberg, "Terra Nova" mixes family drama with dinosaur action and, of course, the peskiest of foes—humans with a different point of view.
