Executive producing the project is none other than Get Out director Jordan Peele. Peele, Kinberg and Ramirez will collaborate together on the premiere episode of the new series.

CBS All Access has given a series order to a new take on the classic TV show from Rod Serling.

CBS All Access subscribers can watch anything that CBS has to offer, like local market National Football League games, and exclusive All Access shows like "Star Trek: Discovery" and the newest addition to the lineup: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer". Dark Net's Win Rosenfeld and Changeling's Audrey Chon are also set to serve as executive producers.

The Twilight Zone will join Discovery, No Activity, and The Good Fight (also renewed for season two) as CBS's flagship originals on the streaming service.

"The Twilight Zone was a touchstone in my life", said Kinberg. 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. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. CBS calls its landmark show "the godfather of sci-fi", and it plans to reimagine the series for a modern audience. Key to the reboots is having the original producers attached, which would be CBS Television Studios in the case of The Twilight Zone.

CBS All Access is available on your mobile device, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, PS4, Xbox or Windows 10. Discovery gave the service a major boost in signups in September, but All Access is still experiencing some growing pains, and audiences are still getting used to the concept of paying to stream just a handful of exclusive shows.
