The original The Twilight Zone took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but also of mind. Created by Rod Serling, it was a journey to a wonderful land of imagination for five years at CBS from 1959 to 1964. Godfather of the science fiction series, the program explored the hopes, despair, pride and prejudices of humanity in ways metaphorical things that conventional drama could not.
The new Twilight Zone series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Films. Jordan Peele, Kinberg and Marco Ramirez serve as executive producers of the series and collaborated on the premiere episode. Win Rosenfeld and Audrey Chon also serve as executive producers.
