Steven Spielberg Futuristic Thriller ‘Extant’ For Summer 2014
Steven Spielberg is looking to provide more high concept television next summer. Alongside the hit Under the Dome, Spielberg brings an original concept about an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family.
“Extant is a very original concept with layers of humanity, mystery and surprise that reveal itself throughout the script,” CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said. “Our partnership with Amblin for Under the Dome showed that viewers respond to high-quality event programming in the summer. We look forward to building on that with Extant and offering CBS audiences another high-concept, unique event for summer television.”
Extant is described as a futuristic thriller about 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 change the course of human history.
