Extant-An Exciting New Science Fiction TV Drama in CBS
There is a new series in TV, a science fiction and dramatic series that I have started watching last week. So far I have watched two episodes. I really like and recommend it not only to science fiction enthusiasts but to all who enjoyed watching good and entertaining TV dramas.
Extant is an American science fiction television dramatic series created by Mickey Fisher and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The story revolves around astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) who returns home to her family inexplicably pregnant after 13 months in outer space during her mission.
On August 7, 2013, CBS announced that it had placed a 13-episode straight-to-series order, bypassing the traditional pilot stage. Steven Spielberg served as one of the executive producers. Production began in Los Angeles on February 10, 2014.
The series is broadcast in the United States on the CBS television network, and is a production of Amblin Entertainment. It premiered on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, at 9:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pm Central. Here's a brief summary of the plot..
After spending a year in space, where she lived and conducted strange experiments, astronaut Molly Watts (Halle Berry) tries to resume a normal life with her family consisting of her husband, John, a gifted scientist, and Ethan, their son, a boy like no other. He is not their biological son as Molly is infertile. Ethan was designed by his father as the first prototype of a future line of "Humanichs", "human robots". But the return of Molly will have dramatic consequences for the entire planet and the fate of mankind. Sounds very exciting!
I am looking forward for future episodes.
