Syfy UK lands Spielberg’s Extant

NBCUniversal-owned Syfy UK has acquired exclusive broadcast rights in the territory to Steven Spielberg mystery thriller Extant.



The series, picked up from CBS Studios International, will make its debut on Syfy UK on Tuesday January 20 at 21.00 (GMT) having premiered in the territory via Amazon earlier this year.

Produced by Spielberg’s Amblin Television and starring Halle Berry, Extant is about an astronaut who comes home after spending a year alone in space, and tries to reconnect with her husband and son.

US network CBS recently renewed the programme for a second season for summer 2015. The show’s first season has already sold to numerous broadcasters worldwide, including Japanese premium pay TV channel Wowow.

Stateside, Amazon in January struck a deal with CBS allowing it to stream the 13-part series on its Prime Instant Video service just four days after broadcast on TV.

Extant is produced alongside CBS Television Studios and is distributed domestically in the US by CBS Television Distribution and worldwide by CBS Studios International.
