Adam Scott (The Good Place, Big Little Lies, Parks and Recreation) is the latest cast member to enter the fifth dimension, joining the CBS All Access original series The Twilight Zone. Scott will star in the episode “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet.” CBS All Access previously announced that Jordan Peele will host and narrate the series and actress Sanaa Lathan will star in the episode “Rewind.”
“Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” will be a remake of “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” which was originally a 1963 episode that starred William Shatner and later part of 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie, which featured John Lithgow.
The Twilight Zone is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films. Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.
The original The Twilight Zone premiered on Oct. 2, 1959 on CBS. The series took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. The Twilight Zone became a worldwide phenomenon as it used socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times. 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 dramas could not. Every episode of the original series is available to stream now on CBS All Access.
The Twilight Zone filming began on Monday, Oct. 1 in Vancouver, British Columbia and will premiere on CBS All Access in 2019.
