NBC is about to finish up its miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby” remake with movie star Zoe Saldana and now CBS seems ready to launch a miniseries that looks like “Rosemary’s Baby In Space” with movie star Halle Berry.
But wait! Is “Extant” about an astronaut who gets knocked up by an extraterrestrial or about an astronaut dealing with her robot son back on Earth?
“Extant” was created by Mickey Fisher, who apparently wrote and directed the 2004 boxing drama “The King of Iron Town” and the 2006 softball comedy “Summer Nuts.” Both projects seem to features, but I’m not certain either has seen the inside of a cinema.
"Extant," which launches on CBS July 9, is also from Steven Spielberg, whose company continues to give us summer sci-fi hourlongs “Falling Skies” and “Under The Dome.”
