Los Angeles, Oct 5 : Actress Halle Berry is returning to the small screen with a lead role in Steven Spielberg's sci-fi drama "Extant".


This is for the first time that the 47-year-old has taken on a role on TV after appearing in the 1991 American soap opera "Knots Landing".

"I'm always on the lookout for amazing roles, and when you see material that contains this strong of auspices, nuance and complexity, it compels me to run toward it no matter the medium," Berry said in a statement.

"Extant" will air in the summer of 2014.
