You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. A dimension where HOLY SHIT, JORDAN PEELE IS REBOOTING THE TWILIGHT ZONE.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peele’s aptly named Monkeypaw Productions will produce a new version of The Twilight Zone, with Marco Ramirez of Netflix’s The Defenders tapped as showrunner. The new Twilight Zone is bound for the subscription service CBS All-Access, so if a Good Wife spinoff or a new Star Trek weren’t enough to turn your head, this might be the tipping point.
It’s hard to imagine someone better equipped to reboot The Twilight Zone than Jordan Peele. In conjunction with the release of Get Out earlier this year, Peele programmed a series of classic “social thrillers” like Night of the Living Dead and Rosemary’s Baby, and he’s clearly passionate about using genre stories to explore a wide range of social and political issues. Now, he’ll be able to program new, twisty stories with pointed social messages every week. Sign us the hell up.
