CBS’ streaming service will submit “The Twilight Zone” reboot for viewers’ approval on April 1.
The date was announced this week by an executive from CBS All Access. She couldn’t help but use quotes from creator and Palisadian Rod Serling when she told reporters “we will enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind.”
The reboot itself – with Jordan Peele in Serling’s role as host and narrator — was announced a little more than a year ago. Peele was the creative force behind the “Twilight Zone-ish” movie, “Get Out.”
Rod Serling, who died in 1975, wrote his ground-breaking series while living in the Palisades. It ran 1959-1964 on CBS. His widow, Carol Serling, has lived in the Highlands for years. She is an executive producer on the new “Twilight Zone,” which is the fourth edition of the series.
The first two episodes of this new version will be available Monday, April 1 on demand to subscribers of CBS All Access. After that, new episodes will be available Thursdays starting April 11. The original “Twilight Zone” series also is available at CBS All Access.
