If you were a child of the 60's you doubt spent many a terrified night watching Rod Serling's classic science fiction anthology tv program 'The Twilight Zone'. The innovative show ran from 1959 - 1964, and launched the careers dozens of now famous stars. It may seem tame by today's standards, but it was really way ahead of its time back in the day.

There was a revival in the 80's, which was not nearly as spooky, so when I saw that a new version is being produced by Academy Award winner Jordan Peele, I was pretty excited. He will also narrate the episodes, and we all know what a fantastic job Rod Serling did with the original. (All with a cigarette dangling from his lips!) You might have seen a preview during the Super Bowl, and now the first official trailer has been released, and it was so amazing that I just couldn't wait to share with you.

The clip has some pretty big star power, and includes glimpses of Tracy MorganSteven YeunSanaa LathanKumail NanjianiJohn ChoJacob Tremblay, and Adam Scott. The first episode will air on CBS All Access on April 1st.
