The plot surrounds Robert/Bob Allen (James Wolk) who is a charismatic scheming con man living two different lives with two different women. As "Bob" he lives in Houston and is married to Cat (Adrianne Palicki) who is the daughter of Clint (Jon Voight) the patriarch of a mega-wealthy oil family.

The only thing mankind can do is send back in time people to prehistoric Earth where they will live with other settlers on the Terra Nova colony, and try to build a humanity that avoids the same pitfalls and troubles as the first time around. The Shannon family discovers Terra Nova is surrounded by dangerous dinosaurs, giant insects and other prehistoric threats. Described by Spielberg as a "conceptual delicious banquet for audiences", this series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, DreamWorks Television, Kapital Entertainment and Chernin Entertainment.
