Halle Berry agreed to star in new TV show Extant because the script was so much better than the movies she was being offered.

Halle Berry thinks TV is now better than film.

The 47-year-old actress - who has children Nahla (6) with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, and eight-month-old Maceo with husband Olivier Martinez - was unimpressed with the movie scripts she was receiving and had no desire to return to work until she was approached to appear in sci-fi drama series Extant. She told Entertainment Weekly: "I was being offered parts that I felt like I had done before. They weren't exciting enough for me to leave my family for four months. I realised some of the best writing especially for women, was on television. "The minute I started to read [Extant], I couldn't put it down. I thought, 'Wow. This is different.' It's innovative."

'The minute I started to read Extant, I couldn't put it down.'

The highly-anticipated miniseries sees Halle play infertile astronaut Molly Woods who returns from a year-long solo space mission pregnant, and the brunette beauty was attracted to the character because of her "complicated" life.

She added: "Molly is a strong female character, which I really love to play. Molly is a complicated woman with a complicated family

"Who is a woman who goes away to space for a year and leaves her husband, first of all? Who is a woman who comes back pregnant and tries to handle it somehow on her own? That just felt like a complication that I wanted to be a part of."
