Review of "The Twilight Zone" 3/30/19 by Suzanne
Season One airs on CBS All Access

I should admit that I like all of the versions of "Twilight Zone," "Outer Limits" and other scifi anthology series. I grew up with the original ones, and I loved all of the series they did in the 80's and beyond.  This one is very good. Anyone who loves these type of shows should like it. I think Rod Serling would be proud. They're re-doing some of the older episodes of the original show as well as making new ones. Actor/writer/producer/director Jordan Peele is in the charge of the series, and he narrates it, just like Serling did.

The first episode features Kumail Nanjiani ("Silicon Valley," "Portlandia") as a bad comedian who finds out that if he uses personal stories in his act, he becomes a successful comedian. Of course, there's a price to pay... Tracy Morgan ("The O.G.," "30 Rock") also appears in the episode. The series has many great actors as guest stars, such as Greg Kinnear, John Cho, Allison Tolman, Adam Scott, DeWanda Wise, Ginnifer Goodwin and more. I think you'll love it! A new episode drops every Thursday.

"CBS ALL ACCESS" TEAMS WITH JORDAN PEELE, SIMON KINBERG, MARCO RAMIREZ FOR “THE TWILIGHT ZONE”

New Series Coming Exclusively to CBS All Access

Dec. 6, 2017 – CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced the latest addition to its original programming slate, THE TWILIGHT ZONE. 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.

Too many times this year it’s felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can’t think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,” said Jordan Peele, Executive Producer.

“‘The Twilight Zone’ was a touchstone in my life,” said Simon Kinberg, Executive Producer. “The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and I’m so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team at CBS All Access.”

The original ‘The Twilight Zone’ bridged science-fiction, horror and fantasy together to explore human nature and provide social commentary in a way that audiences had never seen before,” said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content, CBS All Access. “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.”

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.

THE TWILIGHT ZONE joins CBS All Access’ growing slate of original series, which currently includes its first comedy series, NO ACTIVITY, streaming now; THE GOOD FIGHT, returning for a second season in early 2018; and STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, which was renewed for a second season and will return with chapter two of season one on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, after 8:30 PM, ET. CBS All Access’ original series library will continue to expand with the previously announced $1, STRANGE ANGEL, TELL ME A STORY and additional programming to be announced.
