CBS today announced a straight-to-series order for a futuristic thriller from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios. The serialized drama "Extant" is set to air in summer 2014.

The storyline centers on the efforts of a female astronaut to reconnect with her family after she returns from spending a year in outer space. Her story reportedly has implications for the course of human history.

  1. Straight to series? That’s a lot of faith for a company that has a mixed track record, if that, in televised science fiction. For every “Under the Dome” there’s a disappointment like “Terra Nova,” “Falling Skies,” “Taken” or going back aways, “Amazing Stories.” That said, I’ll be there with my hopes up for the premiere episode.

  2. I almost forgot one of my, ahem, favorites: “SeaQuest DSV”
