(CBS News) – Halle Berry is now taking herself into space, and television. In the new CBS sci-fi thriller “Extant,” Berry plays an astronaut who returns from a year-long solitary space mission, pregnant.

“When I read it, I thought, wow, what an amazing character,” Berry told CBS News. “That’s what I’m looking for: a new challenge. Something I hadn’t done before. This Sci-Fi was so rooted in family and grounded, and the characters were complicated indeed. I thought hmm, this could be really wonderful.”

This is Berry’s scripted television premiere, and she is thrilled about the jump to a new medium.

“I have never looked at TV as a negative,” Berry said. “As I was doing well in my movie career, I always came back to do television movies. I go where the work is. I go where the characters are. And I’m happy that other people are starting to do the same thing. The lines are blurring.”
