    UNDATED (CNN) -- Halle Berry has a new son and a new career move. She is the latest film star to make a jump to the small screen.

    The 47-year-old Oscar winner will lead a new CBS drama called "Extant," produced by Steven Spielberg.

    Berry will portray an astronaut who returns home after a year-long solo space mission and tries to reconnect with her son and husband.

    Berry will also serve as co-executive producer on the project. It's slated to debut on CBS in the summer of 2014.

    Berry and her real-life husband, Olivier Martinez, welcomed their first son together Saturday.

    She also has a 5-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
