Fox International Channels (FIC) will exclusively broadcast Stephen Spielberg's big budget TV drama Terra Nova in Asia.

FIC's Fox network will premiere the show on 29 October. Terra Nova, set in the year 2149, is about scientists who build a time machine that enables people to travel 85 million years back in time.

“Viewers across Asia who subscribe to the Fox channel will be treated to the most anticipated, highest-budget TV drama series ever produced,” said Joon Lee, senior VP of programming, creative and channel operations at FIC.

“Terra Nova joins other leading shows on the Fox channel such as NCIS, Criminal Minds and Bones to help further consolidate Fox’s position as a leading entertainment channel in the region.”
