Halle Berry could soon be gracing our televisions screens on a weekly basis.
According to Deadline, the Oscar winning actress has been contacted to star in “Higher Learning,” a project being undertaken by Hollywood veteran Lee Rose. Rose, who has oversaw several 1990s television shows, has spend the last ten years as a director. While little is known about the project, “Higher Learning” would center around a college professor. Insiders are buzzing that Halle is the top pick for the role. Rose has been shopping the project to cable networks, HBO and Showtime.
Though she is known as a megawatt big screen stunner, the small screen is where Halle first got her start. Gaining national recognition in the 1980’s Who’s the Boss? spin-off, Living Dolls, Halle quickly catapulted to stardom.
Known for her blockbusters and harrowing dramatic performances in theatres, her small screen returns have gotten critical acclaim as well. Her work on HBO’s Introducing Dorothy Dandridge in 2000 earned her both a Best Actress Emmy and a Golden Globe.
The talks are being kept under lock and key but I’m definitely hoping it gets picked up.
