Want to know what the new sci-fi, paranormal and spy shows coming up during summer and fall look like? Well, here are videos of them, along with concept art from Steven Spielberg's midseason time-traveling family/dino drama Terra Nova.




The Gates (Premieres Sunday, June 20, at 10 p.m. ET/PT)

When a new police chief and his family move into an exclusive gated community, they discover "supernatural elements lurk behind the shadows of The Gates." Expect vampires, werewolves ... and other.


Persons Unknown (Premieres Monday, June 7, at 10 p.m.)

A group of strangers find themselves trapped and they must figure out a way to escape. Sort of like the ultimate Big Brother.


Haven (Premieres Friday, July 9, at 10 p.m.)

Based on the Stephen King novella The Colorado Kid, the story follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) as she arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine, to investigate a routine death. Let's just say the townspeople have "supernatural afflictions" and that complicates things for the pretty FBI lady.




No Ordinary Family (Tuesdays at 8 p.m.)

When an ordinary family goes through a plane crash, they all end up with different super abilities that make them more than a little less ordinary.

The Event (Mondays at 9 p.m.)

A conspiracy thriller a la 24 that explores what happens when an Everyman (Jason Ritter) begins to investigate the disappearance of his fiancée (Sarah Roemer) and accidentally stumbles onto the biggest coverup in the history of the United States.

The Cape (Midseason)

When an honest cop is framed for murder and presumed dead, he is forced to go into hiding, leaving his wife and son behind. In an effort to get his family back and take down those that framed him he becomes his son's favorite comic-book superhero, The Cape.


Nikita (Thursdays at 9 p.m.)

A former spy named Nikita (Maggie Q) returns, seeking retribution against her former bosses, while they continue to train and recruit others, including a young woman named Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca).


Terra Nova (Midseason)

From Steven Spielberg ... A family from the year 2149 travels back in time with a group of settlers in a last-ditch effort to "save the human race." They end up on prehistoric Earth and discover their utopia has dinosaurs and other prehistoric threats. (Sorry, no video of this one yet—but as soon as we get our hands on some, we'll share it with you!)
