Before even the mini-series based on the DINOTOPIA books airs on ABC, the network has greenlit an ongoing series.

Unlike the mini-series, which hits the network in May, the ongoing series will have a totally different cast. Erik von Detten (THE PRINCESS DIARIES) and Shiloh Strong (FOXFIRE) will star as brothers who find themselves on the secret island of Dinotopia where dinosaurs never died.

The premiere date is yet unknown, but ABC is shooting for a spring 2003 premiere.
