With Extant Halle Berry joins the ranks of Hollywood stars trying their luck on the small screen.
The sci-fi series finds the Academy Award winning actress playing astronaut Molly Watts who returns from a 13-month solo mission pregnant. Somehow that mysterious pregnancy will lead to a change in the course of human history – or so the official CBS synopsis promises rather vaguely.
The recent cancellation of the Karl Urban starrer Almost Human on FOX showed that a movie star and a bit of costly sci-fi don’t guarantee success in TV land. So we’ll see how things go with Extant.
Watch the trailer for Extant below:
Extant premieres July 9, 9/8c.
