Halle Berry plays an astronaut returning to Earth in 'Extant', the sci-fi thriller premiering on CBS in the US this summer.
The upcoming TV series will see the Oscar-winning actress playing an astronaut.
After presenting a few short videos, CBS has uploaded a more extensive trailer for its new summer series Extant produced by Steven Spielberg. The footage provides new details into the mysterious supernatural forces at work in the life of Molly Woods, played by Halle Berry.
In her first TV role, the Hollywood star plays an astronaut returning to Earth after a 13-month solo mission in space. As Molly attempts to reconnect with her husband John and their son Ethan after her extended absence, she must also cope with a series of mysterious events related to her latest mission that threaten to change the course of history. In particular, Molly finds upon her return from space that she is pregnant, although she was previously told she could not bear children.
Goran Visnjic (ER) and Grace Gummer (American Horror Story) also appear in this science-fiction series produced by Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. CBS will air the first episode of Extant on July 9 in the US. — AFP Relaxnews
