Jason O'Mara and Stephen Lang will star in Terra Nova, which follows an ordinary family on an extraordinary journey back in time to prehistoric Earth.

Tony Award winner Katie Finneran will star alongside Emmy winner Jaime Pressly in I Hate My Teenage Daughter, a comedy about two single moms struggling to raise their difficult and over-privileged teenage daughters.

Jason Butler Harner will appear in Alcatraz, a new thriller centered on America's most infamous prison.

Playwright Liz Meriwether has created New Girl, to star Zooey Deschanel as an offbeat girl who -- after a bad breakup -- moves in with three single guys.

Additional new programming includes Simon Cowell's new singing competition series The X Factor; the animated comedies Allen Gregory and Napoleon Dynamite; and the drama The Finder.
