The original “The Twilight Zone” series premiered on Oct. 2, 1959 on CBS and the show quickly became a pop-culture sensation. The series took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind.
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.
“The Twilight Zone” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Kinberg’s Genre Films. In addition to Peele and Kinberg, Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Alex Rubens, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling and Rick Berg also serve as executive producers.
If you need to catch up on the show, Season 1 of “The Twilight Zone”, as well as the entire original series, is available to stream now on CBS All Access.
