Adjust Comment Print

CBS All Access, the streaming service that brought "Star Trek" back to television, is bringing back another classic property with help from "Get Out" writer/director Jordan Peele.

"The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life", said Kinberg.

Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone is officially on its way.

Jordan Peele is set to executive produce the new reboot alongside long-time X-Men producer Simon Kinberg, Daredevil producer Marco Ramirez, Win Rosenfeld, and Audrey Chon.

The European Commission then claimed that manufacturers should be able to decide, in order to protect their brand's image. Coty argued that online platforms selling its high-end products damaged the image of its luxury brands.

Created by Rod Sterling, the original show premiered on CBS in 1959, telling a series of moralistic, self-contained science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories each week. CBS has yet to announce a release date, casting, or any other writers attached to the project. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone.

One of the smartest and funniest people in show business - best known as half of the comedy team Key & Peele - biracial actor Jordan Peele says he had "never seen a protagonist that looked and felt and thought like me in movies".

"The Twilight Zone" has already been revived twice, once from 1985 to 1989 on CBS and once for one season in 2002 and 2003 on UPN. It won two Emmys, and Serling won a Golden Globe. "Twilight Zone: The Movie" came out in 1983.

The Twilight Zone revival arrives as individual episodic anthologies have become increasingly popular following shows like Netflix's Black Mirror, HBO's Room 104 and TBS' The Guest Book. United States television channel CBS has announced it will resurrect the science-fiction series, in a bid to boost its subscription-based streaming platform CBS All Access.
