Movie star Halle Berry is headed back to television where she's also had success. A recent report at The Hollywood Reporter says the Oscar winner will star in Steven Spielberg new television show “Extant”. Berry is set to play an astronaut in the sci-fi drama who returns to her family after being in outer space for a year. CBS reportedly ordered 13 episodes of the series and inked a 2 year first look production deal with “The Call” star.
In reaction to the project Berry said she was looking forward to the collaboration.
“I've found amazing partners in CBS' Nina Tassler and Les Moonves, and the incredible Steven Spielberg, along with his Amblin production team, whose vision and creativity in storytelling is unparalleled.“
Earlier this year Berry scored another box office hit with “The Call” in which she starred as a 911 operator who takes on a serial killer. Her fans can also look for her in the next installment of the “X-Men” franchise as Storm in ”X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
