HBO surprised the TV world yesterday with the announcement of a standalone streaming option for the reclusive network, but it isn't the only TV giant looking to secure a streaming future. CBS has announced (and launched) its own pay-service to give non-cable users access to their library of content, calling the new innovation "CBS Access."
Among the last, but certainly not least, the eye network CBS has officially gotten in on the Upfront 2014 game by releasing their schedule for the fall, and full trailers for the newest series. Few major surprises (minus that 'How I Met Your Dad' pass), but take a look at the future of CBS with new trailers for Halle Berry's 'Extant,' sporting family sitcom 'The McCarthys' and more!
The inaugural teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's forthcoming Halle Berry CBS sci-fi drama 'Extant' seemed to raise more questions than answers on the nature of its story, but we at least know Berry will be in good company for the summer series. 'ER' doctor and former 'Red Widow' star Goran Visnjic has officially joined the role as Berry's character's husband, but are we any closer to knowing what 'Extant' is all about?
Halle Berry's buzzworthy CBS/Steven Spielberg thriller 'Extant' has barely shot a single frame, so little that a recent TCA presentation cobbled together footage from other movies as a teaser, but now we have something real to chew on. The first official teaser for CBS summer sci-fi drama 'Extant' has hit, and it's...well, it's still pretty confusing.
We didn't bother keeping up with CBS' Stephen King drama, 'Under the Dome,' in its initial 2013 run, given how far-fetched the sci-fi story quickly became, but will the people of Chester's Mill have a brighter day in season 2? CBS has officially set a premiere for Dean Norris and co. to return, along with a date for Stephen Spielberg-Halle Berry drama 'Extant.'
We knew CBS wasn't kidding around with its summer series after the commercial success of Stephen King's 'Under the Dome,' but the eye network's big buzzy sci-fi collaboration with Steven Spielberg just got a whole lot bigger. Halle Berry has signed on for her first regular TV role to lead the new astronaut drama 'Extant,' but what about the series will have audiences spinning?
Though critical reactions have run the gamut, there can be no denying that CBS struck it rich in adapting Stephen King's 'Under the Dome' for a summer series, whose ratings conclusively netted a second season. Next summer, CBS will tap another Steven for another potential hit, granting a series order to film legend Steven Spielberg's sci-fi drama 'Extant.' So, what mysteries does the 2014 series hold?
