Following the stellar Star Trek Discovery series, now the CBS All Access digital streaming service has green lit a new Twilight Zone series. Peele and Kinberg had the following comments on the project...
"Too many times this year it's felt like we were living in a twilight zone, and I can't think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences", Mr. Peele said in a release.
So with this appreciation for horror and thriller, it makes sense that CBS and Peele would find a way to work together on a "Twilight Zone" reboot. CBS announced today that it has issued a series order for a revival of The Twilight Zone from Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Filmsfor its All Access streaming service. Audrey Chon and Win Rosenfeld are also executive producing.
This will be the third attempt at a reboot of the classic series.

CBS tried to revive The Twilight Zone most recently in 2012 with X-Men: Apocalypse director Brian Singer, but nothing ever came from the attempt. Ramirez is repped by UTA.
