Sci-Fi Series EXTANT Heading to Horror Channel

Proving that it’s more than just the scary stuff, Horror Channel will be screening both seasons of Extant, starting in May.

Starring Halle Berry and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the futuristic thriller was written by Mickey Fisher (keep an eye on the STARBURST website for an exclusive interview), who had the script produced thanks to being discovered through a screenwriting contest.

The synopsis is:

Astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) returns home from a 13-month solo mission in outer space to discover she’s pregnant. She tries to reconnect with her husband, John (Goran Visnijc), a robotics engineer who has created their son Ethan, a prototype android called a "humanich”, (played by Pierce Gagnon), but relationships are put under dangerous strain when Molly’s mystifying experiences in space lead to events that will ultimately change the course of human history.

Season 1 of Extant starts on May 11th with weeknight screenings at 8pm and Season 2 beginning on May 28th.
