“The earth was all but collapsing. We couldn’t breathe the air, drink the water,” says actor Stephen Lang in a voiceover. “Terra Nova is a new beginning.” Lang plays Commander Nathaniel Taylor in the series, the first of a group of settlers to arrive on prehistoric Earth and begin cultivating a new colony of humans among a group of dangerous dinosaurs.

In other Branch-related TV news, the singer tells The Hollywood Reporter that she’s working on launching a food show -- baking, to be exact -- and has hooked up with the producers of Hell’s Kitchen to bring it to life. “I’m opening my bakery in LA hopefully sometime between January and March of next year and we’re going to film a food show following me as I try to open a restaurant while being on tour and being the mother of a six-year-old,” said Branch. As for the delectable confections she plans to make? “Mostly pies,” she says. “It’s like a bar and bakery -- a pastry speakeasy.”
