Jordan Peele to executive produce CBS 'The Twilight Zone' reboot

On Wednesday, CBS also unveiled a new project: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer, coming exclusively to CBS All Access".

An episode count and premiere date for the series have not been set yet. Audrey Chon and Win Rosenfeld are also executive producing. Now we've got a little more information from CBS about the reboot, including the fact that Jordan Peele (Get Out) will co-executive produce the show. 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.

Hopefully, CBS will at least air the Twilight Zone pilot on primetime, as they did with Discovery, giving fans a chance to sample the show before they buy in.

CBS All Access has seen quite a bit of success over the past six months with the launch of 'Star Trek: Discovery' to fanfare and critical success alike. The network revived the series in the 1980s - it ran for three seasons and again in 2002 for a season on UPN with host Forest Whitaker.

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 director and performer is now taking on a classic: A reboot of The Twilight Zone for the CBS All Access streaming service. CBS calls its landmark show "the godfather of sci-fi", and it plans to reimagine the series for a modern audience.

A new iteration of The Twilight Zone has been in the works for years, with War for the Planet of the Apes filmmaker Matt Reeves at one point directing a feature film adaptation.
