JORDAN PEELE WELCOMES US TO THE “TWILIGHT ZONE”
ICONIC SERIES REBOOT GETS GREENLIT WITH JORDAN PEELE
“Get Out” was not the only project Jordan Peele wanted to perfect but his mastery of thriller elements mixed with societal satire has landed him in control of the new Twilight Zone revival.
The series has finally been ordered to be produced with Peele serving as executive producer along with Simon Kinberg and Marc Ramirez. Both Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Kinberg’s Genre Films will head up production.
The catch with this new reboot: it’s only available on the CBS All Access streaming service. In an attempt to combat streaming sites like Hulu and Netflix, CBS launched Star Trek: Discovery as an All Access exclusive, however that proved to be a decent success. CBS was hoping that the prestige of The Twilight Zone would be enough to attract viewers to All Access. Adding Jordan Peele to the mix may be enough to win fans over.
There’s no word on how long the series will be around for or even when it will premiere.
