Halle Berry isn't only expecting a baby with new husband Olivier Martinez at any moment now, but CBS says the Oscar winner will star in a serialized drama coming to the network next summer.

Berry, 47, will headline Extant, a 13-episode thriller. Berry will play an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that change the course of history.

The series is being made in partnership with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, which made last summer's surprise hit for CBS, Under the Dome.
