One of this year's most anticipated summer shows that is not contained under a dome is CBS's Extant, the network's second consecutive gamble on a high-profile science-fiction drama that's intended to air during the offseason (the first one being that show under a dome). Extant stars Halle Berry as an astronaut who may've gotten busy or artificially inseminated in space, because she comes back to Earth after a 13-month mission with a baby inside of her. But here's the thing... she was on a SOLO space mission! So what happened? Well, that's presumably what Extant is about!
After much ballyhoo but only a few cryptic descriptions of the series' premise, CBS has finally released the first trailer for the series via Entertainment Weekly, and it appears that I may be writing all sorts of "Extant does mondo ratings!" stories in July. Have a look:
Oh, and that little boy, Halle Berry's son who's about to have a space baby as a little brother or sister? He's totally a robot!
Extant premieres Wednesday, July 9 on CBS. Will you be watching? I will.
