CBS recently closed a deal to take on a TV series based on Stephen King's Under the Dome and it looks like they are eyeing more genre programming. According to a new report, CBS TV Studios is interested in reviving The Twilight Zone.
Deadline reveals that CBS TV Studios is in the very early stages of developing a new version of the classic TV series and brought Bryan Singer on board to spearhead the project. Reportedly, the deal with Singer includes him developing the project, staying on as an executive producer and possibly directing.
Again, this project is in the very early stages of development, so we wouldn't be surprised if it takes a year or so before we hear about it moving forward. Bryan Singer will be directing the next X-Men movie and we're assuming that takes priority above all else. We'll post an update to this story as soon as more details are made available.
For those of you who haven't seen the originally series, we can't recommend it enough. The highly influential anthology series started in 1959 and lasted 156 episodes. Four of the seasons are currently available on the Netflix streaming service and you can watch them right now at: http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/The_Twilight_Zone_Original_Series/70172488
