The show, starring Halle Berry as an astronaut, and produced by Steven Spielberg‘s production company, will premiere on CBS in America on July 9.

“We’re excited to see the first window of EXTANT stream on Amazon in the UK,” said Armando Nuñez, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Global Distribution Group.

“Having such a highly anticipated and star-studded show premiere exclusively on Prime Instant Video is a perfect example of our ongoing commitment to bringing the very best in movie and TV entertainment to our customers in the UK,” said Chris Bird, Amazon Instant Video Film & TV Strategy Director.
