The series won’t kick off until the fall. Glee used the same tactic last year to create buzz.
The two-hour episode will introduce viewers to the show, which chronicles a family living on the nearly-destroyed Earth in 2149. They travel back to prehistoric times to try to save the planet by curbing scientific experimentation and out-of-control population growth.
Spielberg is an executive producer, and sources tell the Post he’s very hands-on, signing off on the script, cast and special effects. His DreamWorks is also one of the production companies behind it.
In order to save money until the first episode — which is rumored to have cost $14 million — airs, Fox recently fired a number of the show’s writers, with plans to rehire them in the spring when production gets underway again.
Each hourlong episode reportedly costs $4 million, according to the Post.
