In case you haven't heard, television is where it's at these days in terms of diverse, ambitious and complex material and we don't need to run down the myriad of stars and shows that have gravitated to the small screen format (in fact, we did a feature about it which you can read right here if you want to know where to start). So no big surprise that another big star is looking to go serial.

Deadline reports that Halle Berry is attached to star in "Higher Learning," a spec script that is now making the rounds to various cable networks including HBO and Showtime. Penned by TV veteran Lee Rose, details are scarce right now but the project would find Berry playing a college professor. No word if it was anything to do with John Singleton's film of the same name which chronicled racial tensions on campus, but it looks to be in similar territory.

Anyway, this one is in early stages so it will be while yet before it picks up steam. Until then, Berry will be busy with the Wachowskis on their massive adaptation of David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas."

    She was one of the great beauties of her time. Still lovely of course. She has had a decent career, and great longevity, which is very remarkable for a black woman. Actors and actresses of any race seem to come and go in a flash, so anyone who demonstrates staying power gets a bit of respect from me.

    I hope it's not related to the 1995 movie. God, what a pretentious piece of crap that was. Overwrought to the point of being unintentionally hilariuos at times. The fact that it had decent performances from Ice Cube and Jennifer Connelly (and some very good cinematography) couldn't save it from such a stupid screenplay.

    She’s always had success on the small screen with fantastic movies such as “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge” and “Their Eyes Were Watching God” that have won her a Golden Globe;a Primetime Emmy Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Lead Actress


    By heading back to TV, Berry joins fellow Oscar-winners Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Holly Hunt and Judi Dench.

    Congratulations to Halle Berry
