The newest iteration of the series will include another remake of the legendary Twilight Zone episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” newly titled “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet,” which will star Scott. The Parks and Recreation actor will play the same role that John Lithgow played in the 1983 Twilight Zone movie, which was originally William Shatner’s role in the show’s first run in 1963. The episode centers on a man who, while traveling on an airplane, goes mad because only he can see a creature outside of the plane.
Peele’s revamp—which was announced last year—started production earlier this month. Similar to the original series, Peele is a driving force behind the reboot as well as its host. He is both the new series’ executive producer and will provide introductory narration before each given story, like original creator Rod Serling did decades ago.
Peele has a few irons in the fire right now, which are categorically akin to Twilight Zone. He has a comedic sci-fi series coming to YouTube, a Nazi hunter series coming to Amazon, and a full-length thriller called Us. CBS All Access will begin airing new episodes of The Twilight Zone in 2019.
