Terra Nova Countdown facebook

Before Season 1 of Terra Nova was released, the Countdown to Terra Nova app revealed a teaser video, poster or faux news article ever day until the premier. The app was created by the Cargo Collective under the supervision of Anna McClure.[1]

The content was later deleted. The videos were not released on DVD.

The Countdown app was available on Facebook and the website The top of the widget had a counter that informed the viewer how many days:hours:minutes:seconds were left before the show's premier. The top also had a few like buttons.

There was also an "Enter The Lottery" button that linked to the Live Terra Nova website.
