"Extant": Enter Halle Berry

Following the success of "Under The Dome", CBS has picked up another Steven Spielberg executive produced, futuristic sci fi thriller TV series titled "Extant", to star Halle Berry ("Catwoman"):

"I'm always on the lookout for amazing roles," said Berry, "and when you see material that contains this strong of auspices, nuance and complexity, it compels me to run toward it no matter the medium."

In the series, Berry's character is pregnant with a baby that is part human and part alien, and has a human-like robot for a son. The family intrigue deepens in subsequent episodes and impacts world events.

"'Extant' is a very original concept with layers of humanity, mystery and surprise that reveal itself throughout the script", said Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment.

Spielberg, Fisher, Greg Walker, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will executive produce the series, which CBS will distribute both domestically and overseas.
