Halle Berry was seen out and about in La on Monday. The actress sported a big grin while shopping with her mom, just a week after CBS canceled her show, Extant. In spite of the bad news, Halle looked to be in good spirits, which could be due to the fact that she will now be producing a legal drama called Legalease for the network. The show will center around a biracial lawyer from Chicago who travels to New Orleans for a case. Meanwhile, the last time we saw Halle was at the Think It Up telecast, where she met up with pal Gwyneth Paltrow and posed for pictures. Keep reading to see the best moments from Halle's latest outing, then check out her jaw-dropping Hollywood evolution. »

See, we always thought that the most beautiful person on this planet was Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry or Zac Efron or maybe Idris Elba. But, damn, were we dead wrong.

The American TV networks are at it again, deciding which shows to reward (Blindspot) and which to cut short (Extant and Minority Report)...
Even though the 'fall 2015' season is only a few weeks young, certain American TV networks have already begun deciding which shows are hits and which ones aren't.
The only success story you'll find here is Blindspot, the Greg Berlanti-produced amnesia thriller starring Jaimie Alexander for which Sky Living has picked up the UK rights. NBC has given it a 'back 9 pick-up,' meaning that the show's first season will now last for a full 22 episodes. Luckily, Alexander's Jane Doe probably has enough tattoo-clues to keep the script-writers occupied for that long.
Episodes: Ongoing (hour)
TV show dates: July 9, 2014 -- September 9, 2015
Series status: Cancelled

So long, Extant! CBS has canceled its summer sci-fi drama starring Halle Berry after two seasons on the air—but it's not saying goodbye to its leading lady any time soon. "I am so proud of what we accomplished on Extant," the Oscar winner said in a statement. "This season seemed such a natural place to end Molly's journey that I, along with CBS, felt it best served the story to leave it there. I've loved this experience working with such a talented cast and creative team." CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller reaffirmed Berry's sentiment in a statement, "CBS, Halle Berry and the producers have decided to conclude the Extant story after last »
CBS has canceled the sci-fi drama Extant after two seasons, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel for its star: Halle Berry will produce a legal drama called Legalease for the network. The show will center around a biracial lawyer from Chicago who travels to New Orleans for a case. There's no indication that she will star on the show, but that could change. As far as Extant goes, CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller had this to say: "CBS, Halle Berry, and the producers have decided to conclude the Extant story after last season's exciting and fitting conclusion . . . We are proud of the show's success on the network, as well as its popularity on Amazon Prime Video. We also want to thank the incomparable Halle Berry for her commitment and support for the series, and look forward to working with her on our next project together." »

Quite frankly, I was actually surprised that CBS renewed it for a second season, which ran its course this summer. In its first season, "Extant" initially drew interest, but seemed to gradually lose its audience, with a season finale that drew just over 5 million viewers, which was significantly lower than the almost 10 million it attracted for its series premiere - suggesting that, as the season progressed, it lost a lot of you (over 40% by the final episode, which is significant), which is why I say I was surprised that CBS renewed it for another season. But I was also happy for its star, Halle Berry, hoping for the best, especially given that producers of the show promised a (much needed) shift in tone and pacing in season 2: "The world is changing, and so the tone of the show is changing. It’s a little more soapy, but it’s a little pulpier and fun, »

CBS has canceled its summer drama event series "Extant" after two seasons.
The series, which wrapped its second season this September, revolved around astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) who is inexplicably pregnant when she returns home to her family after thirteen months on a solo mission in outer space.
Though popular in its first season, the series underwent a big change in its second season, dropping many of its subplots and taking out more than half its key cast. Unsurprisingly its popularity declined, ratings dropping to a 1.1 and 6.35 million viewers an episode. Critical reviews for both seasons were not good.
CBS does plan to remain in business with Berry though and has announced it is developing a legal drama with the star entitled "Legalese". Steven Lichtman ("The Good Wife") will pen the story of a biracial lawyer from Chicago who follows a case to New Orleans where she teams with »

CBS still wants to work with Halle Berry, it just doesn't want to work with her on "Extant." (Same.)
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Extant" has officially been canceled after two seasons. However, in the same breath, they added that a legal drama executive produced by Berry has been put in development at CBS.
The show is called "Legalease," THR explained. It's about a biracial lawyer from Chicago who follows a case to New Orleans, where she finds herself partnering with a good ole boy (white) attorney while working in a justice system that will ultimately expose the biases of society. Will Halle Berry play the lead? They said it's not the plan at this point to have her play an on-screen role in the drama (why the heck not?!), she just plans to produce. But the show is part of her two-year overall deal with Cbstvs, which she signed »

Practically a curse for some this one, and now a contender for Worst Bond Ever. This is a bit harsh: Die Another Day doesn’t deserve the opprobrium heaped upon it. Not to say it’s good; just not utterly irredeemable. Perhaps its greatest problem is tonal. For a while it seems we might get the hard-hitting Bond that Pierce Brosnan so deserved; then suddenly we’re in an ice palace and Bond’s borrowed a car from Harry Potter. The second half of the film is utterly ludicrous but fun if you go along for the (invisible) ride; alas, the first half promised something far more intriguing. It wouldn’t be completely accurate to say it begins as Licence To Kill and ends as Moonraker; but nor is it totally unfair. »
Film was a particularly difficult industry for black actresses to break into. Hattie McDaniel was the first black actress to ever win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1939, for playing Mammy in Gone With The Wind, opening the door for more black women to appear in prominent roles in film. Specifically for screenings in the 1940s South, where a black actress couldn’t play anything but a servant on screen, beautiful women like Lena Horne were given roles that were expendable, able to easily be cut out of films without affecting the plot. Eventually, movies would reflect the real-life improvements in race relations, leading to Halle Berry becoming the first black woman to win a Best Actress Oscar in 2001. The St. Louis Classic Black Film Festival is proud to present a new film festival celebrating the roles and careers of eight pioneering black actresses in a variety of films spanning four decades. »
