‘Get Out’ Director Jordan Peele Set To Remake ‘Twilight Zone’ Series On CBS

Jordan Peele is out to please his fans again, as he prepares to co-produce CBS’s new remake of the Twilight Zone.

According to Variety, Peele will be working on the Twilight Zone remake, which will only be available on the CBS All Access streaming service.

The network announced that CBS All Access will “be the home of a new version of one of the most iconic television shows of all time—’The Twilight Zone.'”

The company is still in the talks with Peele to see how he could participate as an executive producer of the show.

Peele’s directorial debut, Get Out, has set a mark in the horror vertical of the film industry.

Get Out has already been recognized as one of the highest-rated horror films on Rotten Tomatoes. At the same time, Get Out has won multiple awards, including MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance for Lil Rel Howery, MTV Movie & TV Award for Next Generation for Daniel Kaluuya, and Bandung Film Festival for best imported film.

Peele’s approach on tackling the uncomfortable issues of racism has made Get Out extraordinary. The film was a mix of comedy and horror. It also had a dynamic plight when it comes to developing each character’s story.

Peele said he did not have any previous experience before Get Out, but he tried to learn from the best.

If CBS can lock Peele down as the executive producer of the new Twilight Zone series, fans can expect an interesting take on the Hollywood classic.

CBS was also the home for the original sci-fi series that run from 1959 to 1964.

Twilight Zone was an anthology of stories of people finding themselves in “extraordinarily astounding situations, which they each try to solve in a remarkable manner.”

The series was rooted in science fiction, with a mix of thriller and horror. It was the starting ground for actors like Elizabeth Montgomery, Leonard Nimoy, Burgess Meredith, William Shatner, and Robert Redford.

There has already been two revisions of the series with the first one running 110 episodes, and the second only 43 episodes.
