Terra Nova starting tonight on M-Net doesn't seem to be too terribly important to the pay broadcaster.

Terra Nova, the new TV drama starting tonight at 20:30 on M-Net doesn't seem to be of any terrible importance to M-Net.

The pay broadcaster acquired the broadcasting rights to the Steven Spielberg produced show about the Shannon family time travelling back millions of years to prehistoric times to join a fresh start for humanity.

M-Net has however not issued any press release about Terra Nova since the acquisition announcement last year. The pay channel didn't issue any specific press release or press pack regarding the show or made a programming advisory about the show that kicks off with 2 hour premiere this evening.

M-Net didn't make available any advance screener episodes of Terra Nova to South African TV critics and writers, making it impossible to review the show. A media enquiry made last week to M-Net asking whether there would be any advance screener of Terra Nova yielded no response.
