    Chat with Eme Ikwuakor about Extant

    I briefly spoke with Eme Ikwuakor about the new series Extant starring Halle Berry from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV that is premiering on Wednesday. As Eme said it’s a mixture of science fiction, horror, suspense and mystery. I agree with him but I’m going to throw in a little Alien (scream exploding tummy anyone???). I’m very excited about the latest CBS summer series that is shaking off their police procedural drama rut and exploring appealing to a new demographic (geeks who love their sci fi with a little who dunit!).

    Extant (Series Premier July 9th on CBS)

    Academy Award winner Halle Berry will star in EXTANT, a serialized drama from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios. In August, the CBS Television Network announced a straight-to-series order for EXTANT, to be broadcast in summer 2014.

    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.

    “There's only one Halle Berry and we are incredibly honored that she has chosen EXTANT to expand her illustrious career,” said Steven Spielberg. “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.”
