Los Angeles: Hollywood director Steven Spielberg`s television series, ‘Terra Nova’, a prehistoric dinosaur drama, has been pushed back in order to improve upon the special effects in the serial.

The series will go on air on Fox network in the fall (autumn, usually September) and is reported to have cost a $4 million per-episode.

"The world of Terra Nova is visually stunning on multiple levels, and effects play an enormous part. Premiering in the fall will give us the proper time to create a world never before seen on television," IMDb quoted Executive producer Rene Echevarria as saying.

Terra Nova was originally slated to go on air during mid-season, but Fox had delayed the premiere until May to coincide it with the finale of its hugely successful comedy series "Glee".

Starring Jason O `Mara, Avatar`s Stephen Lang and Shelley Conn, "Terra Nova" follows the perilous adventures of colonists from a dying and extinction-threatened Earth in 2149.
