"CBS ALL ACCESS" TEAMS WITH JORDAN PEELE, SIMON KINBERG, MARCO RAMIREZ FOR âTHE TWILIGHT ZONEâ
New Series Coming Exclusively toÂ CBS All Access
Dec. 6, 2017 âÂ CBS All Access, the CBS Television Networkâs digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced the latest addition to its original programming slate, THE TWILIGHT ZONE. The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peeleâs Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinbergâs Genre Films. Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez will serve as executive producers for the series and collaborate on the premiere episode. Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon will also serve as executive producers.
âToo many times this year itâs felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I canât think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,â said Jordan Peele, Executive Producer.
ââThe Twilight Zoneâ was a touchstone in my life,â said Simon Kinberg, Executive Producer. âThe opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and Iâm so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team atÂ CBS All Access.â
âThe original âThe Twilight Zoneâ bridged science-fiction, horror and fantasy together to explore human nature and provide social commentary in a way that audiences had never seen before,â said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content,Â CBS All Access. âUnder the auspices of Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez, and with the creative freedom that theÂ CBS All AccessÂ platform affords, this is an incredible opportunity to bring todayâs audiences a modern reimagining of this iconic series.â
The original âThe Twilight Zoneâ took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanityâs hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama could not.
THE TWILIGHT ZONE joinsÂ CBS All Accessâ growing slate of original series, which currently includes its first comedy series, NO ACTIVITY, streaming now; THE GOOD FIGHT, returning for a second season in early 2018; and STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, which was renewed for a second season and will return with chapter two of season one on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, after 8:30 PM, ET.Â CBS All Accessâ original series library will continue to expand with the previously announced $1, STRANGE ANGEL, TELL ME A STORY and additional programming to be announced.
