CBS Officially Green Lights Jordan Peele's & Simon Kinberg's Twilight Zone Series

CBS All Access announced earlier this month that The Twilight Zone will be coming to their streaming service.

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! CBS All Access' original series library will continue to expand with the previously announced $1, STRANGE ANGEL, TELL ME A STORY and additional programming to be announced. The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Kinberg's Genre Films. Dark Net's Win Rosenfeld and Changeling's Audrey Chon are also set to serve as executive producers.

"'The Twilight Zone' was a touchstone in my life", said Simon Kinberg, Executive Producer. After the huge success of "Get Out", which earned more than $250 worldwide against a budget of just $4.5 million and has made its way into the year-end awards discussion, he's added several new projects to his slate - a list that now includes a reboot of "The Twilight Zone".

Right now, CBS All Access may only really have Star Trek: Discovery as their big ticket item, but that seems poised to change in the future. It has been revived twice before- for a three season run on CBS beginning in 1985, and for a one season run on UPN beginning in 2002.

Peele, who rose to fame on the Comedy Central sketch series "Key & Peele", has proved adept at socially relevant horror.

Created by Rod Sterling, the original science fiction, fantasy, and horror series - shot entirely in black and white - ran on CBS for five seasons from 1959 to 1964.

CBS All Access subscribers can watch anything that CBS has to offer, like local market National Football League games, and exclusive All Access shows like "Star Trek: Discovery" and the newest addition to the lineup: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer".
