One of the most iconic episodes in the original series is easily ‘Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,' starring William Shatner, an episode that George Miller also remade for the 1983 anthology film. Today, we've learned that the upcoming Jordan Peele-produced "Twilight Zone" will be re-remaking the episode and Adam Scott will star.
The story of the 123rd episode followed the only passenger on an airline flight to notice a hideous creature lurking outside the plane.
Jordan Peele will host the new series that is set to premiere on CBS All Access in 2019.
The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s 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.
The original “The Twilight Zone” 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 humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama could not.
