After the success of Amblin Television’s UNDER THE DOME this summer, CBS have ordered 13 episodes of fellow Amblin project EXTANT to air in summer 2014.
The futuristic drama thriller tells the story of a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family after having spent a year in outer space, and of the experiences she has that affect the course of history.
"EXTANT is a very original concept with layers of humanity, mystery and surprise that reveal itself throughout the script,” said CBS Entertainment’s Nina Tassler. “Our partnership with Amblin for UNDER THE DOME showed that viewers respond to high-quality event programming in the summer. We look forward to building on that with EXTANT and offering CBS audiences another high-concept, unique event for summer television.”
UNDER THE DOME was originally marketed as a one-season event series, but shortly after drawing 17.8 million viewers, it was renewed for a second season.
