The iconic anthology series Twilight Zone is getting a reboot for CBS All Access and writer/director Jordan Peele (Get Out) has been tapped to serve as executive producer.
“Too many times this year it’s felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can’t think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,” Peele said in a press statement.
“The original Twilight Zone bridged science-fiction, horror, and fantasy together to explore human nature and provide social commentary in a way that audiences had never seen before,” said Julie McNamara, EVP, Original Content, CBS All Access. “Under the auspices of Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez, and with the creative freedom that the CBS All Access platform affords, this is an incredible opportunity to bring today’s audiences a modern reimagining of this iconic series.”
In addition to Peele, screenwriter Simon Kinberg (X-Men) and Marco Ramirez, co-creator of Netflix’s “The Defenders” will also executive produce.
