A new Twilight Zone series is in the works for CBS All Access, which will be shot in an anthology format with Jordan Peele at the helm.
Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani is the latest to join the cast in an installment written by Key & Peele writer Alex Rubens. Nanjiani is best known for his roles in Silicon Valley, Adventure Time, and Franklin & Bash.
Other cast mates include Adam Scott, who will star in a new take on the classic Twilight Zone episode about a monster on the wing of a plane, “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet.” Sanaa Lathan will also appear in a reimagining of the classic episode “Rewind,” which is about a gambler who thinks he can win with the help of a mysterious tape recorder.
The show will air on CBS’s digital channel next year.
