CBS Access Picks Next Project

Following the undeniable success CBS saw with their reboot of the popular Stark Trek franchise, CBS is trying to capture lightning in the bottle twice. This time, the network is looking to bring back Twilight Zone.

The project will be directed by Jordan Peele (of Key & Peele fame), who made his directorial debut earlier this year with a huge splash when Get Out shattered box office records.

At almost $200 million in ticket sales, this was the highest-grossing of all time for a debuting director. Peele became the first African American director whose movie has grossed over $100 million.

This comes on the heels of the huge boom CBS All Access saw with when they pulled their Stark Trek marketing plot. After airing the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery OTA (over-the-air) on CBS the network, Star Trek: Discovery, the show became exclusive to the communications giant’s live streaming service, CBS All Access. Meaning that you needed to buy the OTT (over-the-top) service in order to continue watching the show.

Since then, Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season.
