The Twilight Zone: Season 1 — Super Bowl Trailer


added: Sun, Feb 3rd '19

Comedian-turned-horror filmmaker Jordan Peele may just be the busiest man in show business as he takes on yet another mind-bending project.

Debuting during the Super Bowl, Peele can be seen breaking into the transmission of the Big Game in this reality-altering trailer for the forthcoming reboot of the classic CBS sci-fi anthology series "The Twilight Zone."

"Witness an empty space filled with thousands of screaming people," Peele says with a slight monotone pitch in his voice as he walks through an empty football stadium.

He continues: "A man both nowhere and everywhere at the same time. Answers are new questions. The unthinkable is the expected."

Peele, dressed in a suit and tie, then steps in front of the camera. He asks, "When truth is not the truth, what dimension are you even in?" And at that moment the classic Twilight Zone theme jingle can be heard.

In addition to executive producing the reboot alongside "X-Men" producer Simon Kinberg, Peele will step in as the show's host and narrator. It's the iconic role that was originally held by the series creator, legendary sci-fi writer Rod Serling.

Described as a "reimagining" of the groundbreaking 1959 original series, which mixed sci-fi with socially conscious storytelling, the all-new "The Twilight Zone" will feature guest stars that include John Cho, Allison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, and Sanaa Lathan.

The series is due to premiere April 1st, exclusively on the streaming service CBS All Access.

Next stop ahead The Twilight Zone.

CBS All Access' upcoming reimagining of the original series, which premiered in 1959, will debut in early 2019. Jordan Peele will serve as host and narrator of the new series, a role made famous by creator Rod Serling, who used socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times.
