M-Net grabs Extant with Halle Berry

2014-07-18 22:00
Cape Town – M-Net has grabbed and secured the broadcasting rights to brand-new drama Extant with Halle Berry and will start broadcasting it from Wednesday 23 July at 21:30 on M-Net (DStv 101).

The quick acquisition and scheduling is in line with the South African pay-TV broadcaster's new turbo-charged roll-out strategy of acquiring and broadcasting not just premium foreign TV content, but also quicker.

With Extant moving into M-Net's Wednesday night slot of 21:30 immediately, everything after it will be one hour later on the schedule.

CSI XIV will start at 22:30 with a new episode, Ray Donovan II will follow at 23:30 with a repeat episode, House of Cards II will follow with a repeat episode at 00:30, and The Leftovers I will follow with a repeat episode at 01:30.

Extant will repeat on M-Net on Thursdays at 15:15 and on Sundays at 16:00.

Extant was created by Steven Spielberg who is also the co-executive producer. The well-reviewed drama which did respectable numbers when it started last week in the United States follows Molly Woods (Halle Berry), an astronaut who returns to Earth after an "incident" in space.
