Jordan Peele Set to Produce Twilight Zone Remake

The actor-director, 38, confirmed on Wednesday that he'll be heading up a reboot of the iconic sci-fi series for CBS All Access, in a collaboration with producer Simon Kinberg and CBS Television Studios. Also serving as executive producers are Win Rosenfelf and Audrey Chon. The project will be produced by Peele's production company, Monkeypaw Productions.

In November we reported on the Twilight Zone Reboot with Jordan Peel and Marco Ramirez producing the series, well CBS has officially gotten the green light!

The anthology series was created by Rod Serling and delved into topics of science fiction, horror, fantasy and mystery in episodes that could feel all too real at times. The Twilight Zone will join Discovery, No Activity, and The Good Fight (also renewed for season two) as CBS's flagship originals on the streaming service. No release date has been set and it's unclear if the reboot is going straight to series or is just in development. "The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and I'm so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team at CBS All Access".

The original "The Twilight Zone" took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. In a crowded landscape of almost 500 scripted shows, individual episodic anthologies are easier to consume. All Access, which is now home to Star Trek: Discovery, Good Wife spinoff The Good Fight, and No Activity, is looking to add to its collection, and with good reason.

"This story was first published on "'The Twilight Zone' TV series from Jordan Peele coming to CBS All Access". Ramirez is repped by UTA.
