Halle Berry continues her small screen run with a new CBS medical drama set up by her production company
She made the leap from the big screen to the small screen with CBS's summer hit drama series Extant.
Now Halle Berry and her 606 Films are linking up with Kate Jacobs, the executive producer of long-running medical drama, House, for another hospital-based series - this time set in prison, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Like House, the acerbic-but-brilliant doctor played by Hugh Laurie, Halle's new project centers on an enigmatic, unothodox surgeon.

High flyer: Halle Berry, who plays an astronaut in CBS drama series Extant, now has a medical drama set up at the network with her 606 Films
The medic shuts himself up in a state-of-the-art private hospital in the grounds of a jail.
Written by Larry Kaplow, there were no details of the plot and no news about the casting.
The new series arises out of 606 Films' first-look deal with CBS TV Studios, which means the network's creative arm gets first refusal on any ideas that come out of 606.
Larry, Kate, Halle and her producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas will be executive producers on the show.
Meanwhile, Extant is coming to the end of its 13-episode run.
Halle plays an astronaut struggling to discover how she became pregnant while on a 13-month-long solo space mission.
It launched on July 7 and is due to end on September 17.
