Halle Berry has found her on-screen son.
Pierce Gagnon, whose credits include “Looper” and “Tomorrowland,” has been cast as the son of Berry’s character in the CBS series “Extant,” which will premiere in summer 2014.
In the series, which comes from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios, Berry plays an astronaut who returns home from a year-long solo mission in space and tries to reconnect with her husband and son in their everyday life. Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.
Spielberg, Greg Walker, script writer Mickey Fisher, Brooklyn Weaver, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will executive produce, with Berry as a co-executive producer.
Gagnon is represented by CESD, Principato-Young Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
