Visnjic’s John Watts is married to Berry’s Molly, an astronaut trying to settle back into her home life after a year-long solo mission. Ultimately, her experiences in both space and at home will lead to events that change the course of history.

Former ER doc Visnjic’s recent television credits include Leverage, Pan Am and Red Widow.

Extant also cast Michael O’Neill (Rectify, The West Wing) as Alvin Sparks, a former astronaut who now directs the series’ privatized space program.

The drama is scheduled to bow Wednesday, July 2, at 9/8c.

  • He was very good in Rex Widow. It’s too bad Red Widow didn’t get a good chance because it was actually a really good show.

    • Agreed. He does wonderful work when he’s got shades of grey in his character. Red Widow was great

    • Yes Red Widow, another show that deserved a chance and he was good in it as well. Glad to see he will be on another show.

    • I don’t know if he was actually good on Red Widow, or I just enjoyed looking at him on Red Widow, because he is so sexy, and now I’m going to have to watch this show just to get my Goran fix.

    • Red Widow sucked. Also, it was given a chance. Viewers just didn’t want it.

    … sounds like Homeland. But with her returning instead of him. And from space, instead of captivity in Afghanistan.
