Netflix passes on Terra Nova – likely dead

Well, it looks like the last chance at rescue for 20th Century Fox TV’s Terra Nova has come and gone. Netflix, the internet video subscription service, had been in talks to take over the series if they could reduce the per-episodes costs. But apparently the numbers still didn’t work for the expensive show, and Netflix passed on it.
It’s uncertain if Fox still has hopes – they have not formally released the actors yet, but star Jason O’Mara is filming a western pilot for CBS and Allison Miller is filming the Matthew Perry-starred NBC comedy pilot Go On, so they aren’t at least sitting waiting for the phone to ring.
