Halle Berry is set to play a college professor in a new TV series.
Although no other details have yet been released about the series' plot or Halle's character, it is thought the show, produced by Dreamworks TV, is pitching to major US networks HBO and Showtime, respected industry website Deadline.com reports.
The 44-year-old star - who was recently cast in the movie adaptation of 'Cloud Atlas' and is also starring in romantic comedy 'New Year's Eve' - would be making her return to regular TV work, after previously starring in 21 episodes of long-running drama 'Knots Landing' in 1991.
It was also revealed earlier this year that she was personally chosen by Aretha Franklin to star in a biopic about the legendary singer's life.
However, the brunette beauty expressed doubts about her ability to play the role because of her lack of vocal talent.
She said: "I can't sing! If I could carry a tune, I'd consider it. Someone should tell Aretha that I can't do her Justice."
