CBS orders Astronaut Series Extant for 2014. Amblin Television’s Extant will join Under the Dome next summer as a one-two sci-fi TV show punch on CBS. Pursued by many, the “winning pitch by CBS’ Nina Tassler was that the network successfully launched Amblin’s Under The Dome, which also was a 13-episode straight-to-series order, and that Extant could be paired with the Stephen King adaptation to form a Steven Spielberg night.”
The plotline of Extant:
a futuristic thriller about a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.
On the people behind the scenes of Extant:
[Steven] Spielberg, who not always lends his name to Amblin series, is executive producing Extant with Greg Walker, who serves as showrunner, Fisher, Fisher’s manager Brooklyn Weaver and Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. The series will be distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
On Extant subsequent airing availability:
Like Under The Dome, which streams on Amazon four days after the CBS premiere, Extant will likely too get a short-window digital distribution deal.
