Steven Spielberg instrumental in bringing Extant to TV



Steven Spielberg was instrumental in bringing new sci-fi series Extant to the small screen according to series showrunner Greg Walker:

"Well, very involved in the very beginning. I mean, even before I was involved, he read Mickey's script and responded to it. And he kind of brought it under his roof there at Amblin Television and brought Mickey in. And then I joined up. And then we went and went out and pitched it," Walker recalled. "But every step of the way, from the creation of the world after what... you know, the extension of the world post-Mickey's pilot, and through every character's development and all the season-long arcs, we consulted with Steven and had long conversations with him."

The series starring Halle Berry as an astronaut premieres on CBS and Prime Instant Video this July.

Looking forward to Extant? Let me know in the comments below.
