The Twilight Zone reboot

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone. — creator Rod Serling.

Update: The Twilight Zone not ready to start production. August, September, October?

The CBS reboot of iconic sci-fi series The Twilight Zone is expected to film in Vancouver.

Filming dates: August 8th – December.

From executive producers Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez, the new anthology of 10 episodes will stream on CBS All Access (home to Star Trek: Discovery).

“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 coming off the success of his blockbuster thriller Get Out.

Get Out was a  smart and scary movie about a black man in a white nightmare. A young African-American meets his white girlfriend’s parents for a weekend at their estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience gives way to a nightmare.

Seems like the perfect fit.

The Twilight Zone aired for five seasons on CBS, from 1959-64. And featured many actors before they became famous, including Star Trek’s William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.
