ExtinctAmazon has signed exclusive UK rights to Extant, a new sci-fi series from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television which stars Oscar-winner Halle Berry.

Berry plays an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in space.  Her experiences in space lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history.

The show’s first episode will debut on Amazon Prime Instant Video on July 10th, the day after the US premiere on CBS on July 9th, with new episodes being added each week following their US broadcast.

“Extant is a bold and thrilling new series from some of the biggest names in entertainment”, said Chris Bird, Amazon Instant Video Film & TV Strategy Director.

“Having such a highly anticipated and star-studded show premiere exclusively on Prime Instant Video is a perfect example of our ongoing commitment to bringing the very best in movie and TV entertainment to our customers in the UK.”

“We’re excited to see EXTANT stream on Amazon in the U.K,” said Armando Nuñez, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Global Distribution Group.

“With its stellar talent, unique concept and production auspices, EXTANT is sure to be this year’s television event in the US, UK and around the globe.”
