As Halle Berry’s has told the reason for coming back to TV in CBS’s “Extant” is simple, She goes “where the work is.”
Actress is looking for much bold material as she has found on silver screen due to the rising trends of drama series such as creatively compelling cable dramas.
Berry said, “I have never looked at TV as a negative. As I was doing well in my movie career, I always came back to do television movies. I go where the work is. I go where the characters are. And I’m happy that other people are starting to do the same thing.”
CBS’s Extantis a new drama that combines advanced elements, Halle Berry’s beauty and the magic of Steven Spielberg to complete this show.
It is created by Mickey Fisher and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. characters of serial are Molly Woods, an astronaut who’s returning home after a 13-month after completing her one handed mission and her mission is about how do you reconnect with your loved ones, after having limited contact with them for a year? This is what Molly Woods is trying to sort out, after returning he tries to readjust her family includes a husband and son android.
“Extant” full of twists defines how Molly got pregnant if she was on a mission by herself. Berry told, “You find out but slowly, It’s very mysterious, it’s very suspenseful, and there are many twists and turns along the way getting to that resolve.”
Last year “under the dome” was a successful summer series and now it is backed with new series of Extant which will also captivate the mind of viewers.
Slate’s Willa Paskin says, “A movie star has descended to television network no less, and she is not putting on airs, Extant, tosses sci-fi films from ’2001′ to ‘A.I.’ to ‘Sunshine’ in a blender, and serves up a psychologically minded speculative smoothie, complete with impregnating aliens, emotional robots, and vast conspiracies.
No one element of this show feels original, and yet I would totally watch more, even if just to peep at the sleek futuristic garbage cans again.”
The New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley thinks ‘Extant’ has a powerful and influential potential than any other series by saying this, “the creators deserve credit for trying to revive this kind of classic science-fiction mystery yet she found that the premiere, while entertaining and expertly produced, doesn’t hold out a lot of promise.”
