Oh well. Won’t be watching that because it’s on the deceptively named “All Access”.

Judging by the trailer, it looks like they’re going to revisit a few of the classic episodes, too.

There'll apparently be ten episodes this season. The first two will debut on Monday, April 1st with the rest released weekly on Thursdays starting on April 11th.

The first two episodes will be "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet" (which is inspired by - but is not a remake of - the original Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" which starred William Shatner)...

...and "The Comedian".

Given that Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Us have been so well received, expectations will be high that he’s going to nail this. Count me in on that particular bandwagon.

Hey, JP!

Don't get your hopes too high. He's just hosting the series, I think. They've tried bringing the show back before. I hope it works out this time.

He also has executive producer credit for the series... which tells us nothing about his actual involvement, alas, but it does mean his name/reputation are a bit more on the line.

"Producer" generally translates to "guy who put money up to make the show." "Executive Producer" can mean either "guy who put up the most money", or "guy we paid to use his name."

While true to some extent, it is still a business risk to attach his name to the product this way.

CBS All Access put The Comedian on Youtube.

Has anyone else been watching this? I watched a few episodes of the original. I know they did stories about race and politics and other social issues. Did they beat you over the head with it like this new one? Their episodes featuring a racist cop shooting a black kid, toxic masculinity, illegal immigrants, and a child president were just absolutely annoying.
