CBS has unveiled the first trailer for Extant, their upcoming sci-fi series executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Halle Berry stars as Molly Woods, an astronaut who has returned to earth after a 13 month solo mission. Strangely enough, she arrives pregnant. It’s a great, if familiar, premise, with many intriguing plot strands teased out in the first trailer. Halle Berry looks to put in a strong turn, as does Pierce Gagnon, playing another creepy kid after his great performance in Rian Johnson’s Looper.
Also starring Goran Visnjic, Camryn Manheim, Sergio Harford and Hiroyuki Sanada.
Synopsis for Extant:
In a thrilling drama, Berry will play an astronaut who returns home from a year-long solo mission in space and tries to reconnect with her husband and son in their everyday life. Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.
Extant will premiere on CBS on July 9, 2014.
