They include Jordan Peele (Get Out) who seems to be leading the charge, as well as Simon Kinberg (X-Men franchise) and Marco Ramirez (The Defenders).

On Wednesday, CBS also unveiled a new project: A reboot of "The Twilight Zone: with "Get Out" director Jordan Peele as an executive producer, coming exclusively to CBS All Access". CBS Television Studios produces the reboot. CBS announced today that it has issued a series order for a revival of The Twilight Zone from Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Filmsfor its All Access streaming service. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959-1964. CBS has yet to announce a release date, casting, or an episode count. The series was previously revived for three seasons in the '80s and briefly in 2002; Steven Spielberg also produced "Twilight Zone: The Movie", starring John Lithgow, in 1983. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone. "The opportunity to continue its lineage is a dream come true, and I'm so thrilled to be doing it with Jordan, Marco and the team at CBS All Access", said Kinberg. It won two Emmys, and Serling won a Golden Globe. Titled "The Twilight Zone: The Movie", the movie was directed by John Landis.

USA television channel CBS said on Wednesday it will resurrect the sci-fi series to boost its subscription-based streaming platform CBS All Access. The roster now includes "The Good Fight" and "Star Trek: Discovery", both spinoffs, as well as the comedy series "No Activity".
