Land of the Giants is a sci-fi drama program that aired on ABC.

While on a routine flight, the crew and passengers aboard the Spindrift, a sub-orbital passenger ship, find themselves caught in a gravity field and pulled towards a strange vortex. When they come out of the other side they find a planet that they think is Earth, but when they land they find that everything on the planet is in gigantic proportions compared to themselves. They must endure a daily fight for survival until they can find a way to recharge Spindrift's power cells and escape the planet.
