CBS has given a thirteen episode, straight to series order for the futuristic thriller “Extant”.
The story follows a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space.
Her experiences lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.
Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios, the same companies behind this year’s major hit “Under the Dome,” are producing the project with Steven Spielberg to serve as executive producer.
A Summer 2014 premiere is being targeted, likely around the same time as the second season of ‘Dome’.
