The New World
In the series premiere, a Pteranodon brings death to the skies over Vancouver's downtown, while a Utahraptor threatens visitors to the city's beloved Stanley Park. Visionary inventor Evan Cross and predator expert Dylan Weir discover that these creatures are coming to the present through magnetic anomalies, mysterious portals in time and space. And for Evan, it's not the first time one of these creatures has come into his life. A devastating encounter with an Albertosaurus six years ago set him on a mission to find the Anomalies, and protect the world from the creatures that come through them.Helped by his Special Projects Group (SPG) -- Toby Nance, Evan's resident technical wizard, Mac Rendell, a British ex-pat with a yen for adventure, and Tony Drake, Evan's friend in the Predator Control office -- Evan and Dylan get more than they bargained for when they join forces to investigate the Anomalies and the creature attacks. And a mysterious visit from Connar Temple (from the original UK version of Primeval) leaves Evan with more questions than answers. Angelika Finch, Evan's oldest friend and the no-nonsense CFO of his company, Cross Photonics, tries to convince Evan to leave the dinosaur problem to the authorities -- even going so far as to track down lieutenant Ken Leeds at Project Magnet, the government bureau charged with handling the unexplained. When a missing child draws our team back to Stanley Park, it's a race against time to find him -- without betraying their secrets.
