The Twilight Zone Details, Courtesy of CBS All Access:

“The original The Twilight Zone series premiered on Oct. 2, 1959 on CBS. It took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. The show became a worldwide phenomenon and sent fans on a journey into a wondrous land of imagination, and it continues to be an inspiration for pushing the boundaries of storytelling.

As an innovator of genre programming, The Twilight Zone explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways to introduce audiences to tales of morality and present perspectives that are underserved in conventional television.

Executive producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s modern re-imagining of the classic TV series continues the legacy of socially conscious storytelling. The series’ second season uses introspection and self-exploration to usher viewers into a dimension filled with endless possibilities.”
