Even before Extant went into production, stories flooded the trades about how hot a pilot script it was and how many people wanted to pay how many million dollars to get their mitts on it.
In July, we’ll get to see if the fuss was worth it.
What I can ascertain about the show’s basic premise from this trailer seems interesting enough. But then, you see, I might have said that same thing about the trailer for The Astronaut’s Wife.
Just the fact that Halle Berry is starring in an expensive summer miniseries shows that TV isn’t quite working the same way as it was a few years back.
I’m looking forward to Extant. Here’s hoping it still maintains some of this appeal when we’re all looking back on it.
