Halle Berry to Star in Steven Spielberg-Produced TV Drama ‘Extant’
Halle Berry is heading to the small screen.
Berry, 47, will play an astronaut who tries to reconnect with her husband and son after coming home from a year-long solo mission in space. The twist? Her experiences in both space and home will lead to events that will change the course of human history.
Adds Spielberg: “There’s only one Halle Berry and we are incredibly honored that she has chosen Extant to expand her illustrious career . . . as she does with everything she touches, she will bring a deep authenticity to her role and I very much look forward to working with her.”
Berry’s previous TV gigs include small roles on shows in the early ‘90s, including Knots Landing and A Different World, and made-for-TV films like Their Eyes Were Watching God and Introducing Dorothy Dandridge.
The star, who is pregnant with her second child, can next be seen on the big screen in X-Men: Days of Future Past, due May 2014.
