Halle Berry has landed the lead in Steven Spielberg's upcoming CBS drama 'Extant', playing an astronaut who struggles upon her return to Earth.
The Academy Award-winning actress will take on the lead in CBS drama 'Extant', playing an astronaut who returns to Earth after a year-long solo mission.
The protagonist struggles to reconnect with her husband and son, while also coming to terms with her experiences in space.
The career-changing role will be the 'Cloud Atlas' actress' first regular TV role since 'Knots Landing' in 1991, and is undoubtedly a massive coup for the show.
Halle said in a statement: ''For five months a year I'll get to live with and play this incredibly intelligent and vulnerable woman, and for the remainder of the year I'll continue to look for other roles that move me as deeply as this one.''
Spielberg commented: ''There's only one Halle Berry and we are incredibly honored that she has chosen 'Extant' to expand her illustrious career.
''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.''
'Extant' is set to air in the summer of 2014.
