Halle Berry joins the list of Oscar winners making the jump to TV when the CBS science-fiction drama “Extant” debuts Wednesday at 9 p.m. Berry (looking gorgeous as ever) plays an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family after returning from a 13-month solo mission in space. Right now, “Extant” (executive-produced by Steven Spielberg) is considered a 13-episode miniseries, but if it’s successful, it will get another season (just like “Under the Dome”). In the first episode, Molly Woods (Berry) returns home and is shocked to discover that she is pregnant. Did we mention she was on a solo mission? In space?
