CBS is bringing aboard Camryn Manheim, who won an Emmy for "The Practice" in 1998, in a co-starring role in an upcoming drama series. Deadline.com reports that Manheim will appear opposite Halle Berry in the new summer drama series “Extant."
The drama, from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and CBS Television Studios, is about an astronaut (Berry) who wants to reconnect with her family after spending a year in space. Manheim will play her best friend and confidante.
This marks Manheim’s first series regular role since she appeared in CBS’s “Ghost Whisperer,” which wrapped in 2010.
