NEW YORK (AP) -- CBS says Halle Berry will star in a serialized drama next summer.
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 summer's hit for CBS, "Under the Dome."
The 47-year-old Berry won an Oscar in 2002 for her starring role in "Monster's Ball."
