Next Wednesday sees Halle Berry‘s much buzzed about new show ‘Extant’ land on TV screens.
Produced by the iconic Steven Spielberg, the CBS series brings an air of cinematic to the small screen with its ambitious plot.
The show, which Berry promotes a-front of the the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly, follows the narrative of astronaut Molly Woods.
Infertile before heading out on a space mission, she returns from the yearlong solo expedition – mysteriously pregnant.
Speaking on her decision to take on the role, 48-year-old told the magazine:
“I was being offered parts that I felt like I had done before. They weren’t exciting enough for me to leave my family for four months. I realized some of the best writing especially for women, was on television.
The minute I started to read (the ‘Extant’ script), I couldn’t put it down. I thought, ”Wow. This is different.” It’s innovative. Molly is a strong female character, which I really love to play. Molly is a complicated woman with a complicated family.
So as to whet appetites ahead of next week’s big launch, CBS have unzipped another sneak peek. Check it out below…
