This coming Monday, April 1st, CBS All Access will begin streaming the Jordan Peele-produced and hosted revival of "The Twilight Zone" with two episodes: Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, starring Adam Scott, and the Kumail Nanjiani-starring The Comedian.
While you wait, an extended trailer has been released that offers a deeper look into a "dimension like no other."
Previously announced cast members also include John Cho, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Rhea Seehorn, Steven Yeun, Luke Kirby, Greg Kinnear, Sanaa Lathan, Ike Barinholtz, and Taissa Farmiga.
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.
