Halle Berry has scored her first series regular role for CBS's sci-fi drama "Extant".

Ordered straight to series, Berry plays an astronaut who returns home from a year-long solo mission and tries to reconnect with her husband and son.

Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history. CBS has committed to 13 episodes of the Amblin TV and CBS Studios-produced series.

Berry has been sought after in TV roles for years, including for such shows as "Homeland" and "Hostages," so this marks a big coup for the network.
