    Hope CBS doesn't try to limit just how sci-fi they go with this. Under the Dome, being SK-based, is pretty much a "crazy **** happens to normal, everyday people" story, this seems a little more out there.

    hmm as much as I like the sound of this, lets face it Spielberg doesn have a good track record when it comes to tv series.

    Eh. It's not a great track record, but it's certainly not a bad one.

    I'm surprised she's going to do a television series. I know it's become acceptable now to for big screen, big name Hollywood stars to do it but I never thought of her as one to step into the world of television.

    That's a big damn casting news.

    Woah! Hostages really could use her about now.

    She couldn't save Hostages. The show lost me with the pilot.

    Though, I saw someone comment on Deadline, that Brody's wife might have been the role she was approached about for Homeland.

    Halle Berry, Kerry Washington and Nicole Beharie. All leading their own series.

    Your're move NBC.

    FYI, I've always liked Halle as an actress. Of course, she only came back as Storm after a few box office failures.

    The Call was successful. I think she would have returned as Storm in any event. Who would pass up playing a superhero? Although I wish she hadn't. I like her but I don't think she's right for the part.

    There was Undercovers in 2010, Deception last season.

    I'm sure they'll have something for 2014.

    This is sounding quite interesting, I'll have to check it out. On paper it certainly sounds like a strange fit for CBS.

    Looks very 2001-ish, with the baby iconography.

    Louis Gossett Jr. has been tapped to play the father of Halle Berry's female astronaut character in CBS' summer series Extant, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

    Extant tells the story of Molly (Berry), an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family after a year in outer space. Gossett will play Molly's affable but undependable father, Quinn, a retired doctor living out his days in an isolated island community, out of touch with the world and estranged from his daughter.

    Best known for his Oscar-winning role in An Officer and a Gentleman and his Emmy-winning role in Roots, Gossett is slated to appear in at least two episodes beginning with Episode 4.

    Goran Visnjic, Grace Gummer, Camryn Manheim and Michael O'Neill will also star in Extant, which hails from Steven Spielberg.

    Extant premieres Wednesday, July 2 at 9/8c on CBS.
