Steven Spielberg - Spielberg's Terra Nova Given The Boot By Fox

Steven Spielberg's 'Terra Nova' has been axed after one series.

The sci-fi drama - which stars Jason O'Mara, Stephen Lang, Christine Adams and Shelley Con - has been given the boot by US TV network 20th Century Fox, which is now thought to be offering it to other companies for a second series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite having an estimated budget of $14m for its two-hour pilot installment and $4m for subsequent episodes, it has failed to do as well as expected.

On average the programme - which also aired in the UK - attracted 7.5 million viewers.

Kelly Marcel - who wrote and produced the series - took to twitter to reveal her disappointment at the decision to axe the show.

She tweeted: ''RIP Terra Nova - eternally grateful to everyone who worked so hard on it so brilliantly. Thank you.''

Last year, Jason - who portrays Jim Shannon in the show - revealed the cast were ''confident'' about the programme being recomissioned for a second series.

He wrote on twitter: ''Decision to pick up Terra Nova for S2 deferred to New Year by [Fox].

''Everyone involved remains confident and optimistic.''
