Terra Nova

Horner created some of the dinosaurs seen in Terra Nova, such as the Slasher. He also was responsible for setting the series in the Cretaceous Period.[1]

“Jack set our show in the Cretaceous Period, 85 million years ago,” explains visual effects supervisor Kevin Blank. “That’s a period where the fossil record is the least defined. They only know about 10 percent of what existed at that time.”
