It has been a good weekend for Halle Berry. On Saturday the star gave birth to her second child, a bouncy baby boy, at Cedars Sinai Medical Hospital in LA. Halle and husband, Olivier Martinez, have yet to announce his name.
However, CBS had an announcement of their own. The actress is set to play the lead role in Extant, a Steven Spielberg thriller series, set to air on the network next Summer. In the drama series, she portrays an astronaut who finds it difficult to readjust to life and reconnect with her family after returning home from a solo mission in space. It chronicles her life and experiences which “lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.”
