Reboot at 30,000 Feet

New 'Twilight Zone' to revisit classic episode

The Twilight Zone

"The Twilight Zone" reboot is set to up the ante on one of the most memorable episodes of Rod Serling's classic sci-fi series, escalating the original "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" to "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet."

Adam Scott of NBC's "The Good Place" and "Parks and Recreation" will take on the role made famous by William Shatner in the 1963 episode about a plane passenger who spots a gremlin wreaking havoc on the wing.

John Lithgow reprised the part in 1983's "Twilight Zone: The Movie."

The new "Twilight Zone" will premiere next year on CBS All Access. The revamp is being helmed and narrated by comedian Jordan Peele, the director and Oscar-winning screenwriter of last year's buzzworthy horror film "Get Out."
