Halle Berry returns to TV in a new drama premiering on CBS tonight.

The Oscar Award winner stars in "Extant," which is executive produced by Steven Spielberg.

She plays astronaut Molly Woods, who returns home from a year in space and learns she's pregnant. She deals with the shocking news while trying to re-establish her relationships with her husband (John Woods, played by Goran Višnjić) and their robot son (Ethan Woods, by Pierce Gagnon).

"Extant" marks Berry's first leading role in a television series, though she's appeared on the small screen in the past. Her most notable TV credits include "Knots Landing" and the HBO movie "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge," the latter of which earned her Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

"Extant" premieres at 9 p.m. EST on CBS, which airs locally on WWMT, Channel 3.
