CBS has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi series Extant.Â The show stars Halle Berry as an astronaut who, upon returning from a 13-month solo mission in space, discovers that sheâ€™s pregnant. Â Her other child (Pierce Gagnon) begins spouting strange, prophetic comments while the government suddenly becomes interested in her life.Â Itâ€™s impossible to ignore that this trailer resembles Gravity, though the space-centered portion appears to be only a small part of the story, as the real mystery begins when she returns to Earth.Â CBS gained big ratings with last yearâ€™s summer experiment Under the Dome despite it being a terrible show, but Extant certainly has an interesting premise and a solid lead.Â Hopefully the series comes together as a worthwhile piece of summer entertainment.
Hit the jump to watch the Extant trailer.Â The series also stars Camryn Manheim, Goran Visnjic, Grace Gummer, Michael O’Neil, and Hiroyuki Sanada. Â ExtantÂ premieres on CBS Wednesday, July 9th.
