Halle Berry Is Ready to Do TV


Halle Berry has only been seen on the big screen once since her attempted post-Catwoman comeback with 2007's Things We Lost In the Fire, but her Oscar bid last year for Frankie and Alice never quite took off. And so it is that even though Berry is suddenly quite busy — she's got New Year's Eve, Dark Tide, and Cloud Atlas on the docket — she's signaled that she's ready for a move into TV. Deadline reports that Berry is attached to star as a teacher in Higher Learning, a script that's being pitched to pay-cable networks. In that case, the project probably won't go to Showtime, since the network is almost certainly saving "Higher Learning" as a tagline for one of its reliably pun-heavy Nurse Jackie marketing campaigns (say, if Jackie decides to go to med school).
