Halle Berry is going to star in a drama for CBS next summer. Does anyone find this surprising? Halle Berry seems like a movie star to me. You know, A-list, fancy-ass, actual “movie star” movie star. But I guess those bills gotta get paid somehow. And it seems like most of the best writing is on TV now. It sounds like it could be a really interesting show. From ABC News:
The Oscar-winning actress will headline “Extant,” a 13-episode thriller. Berry will play an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that change the course of history.
The series is being made in partnership with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, which made last summer’s surprise hit for CBS, “Under the Dome.” CBS announced “Extant” in August.
In her personal life, Ms. Berry is busy as well. She’s due to give birth soon to a baby boy and she just married Olivier Martinez in July. I’m not a Halle Berry fan or anything, but her show like something I’d watch. I’m down with Oscar winning actresses in space.
