Nov. 3 (UPI) -- An updated edition of the anthology series The Twilight Zone is in the works at CBS All Access.

"All Access will be the home of a new version of one of the most iconic television shows of all time -- The Twilight Zone," Variety quoted Leslie Moonves, chief executive officer of CBS Corp., as saying in a conference call with investors Thursday.

The Hollywood Reporter said Get Out filmmaker Jordan Peele is in talks to produce the series through his Monkeypaw production company, with Marco Ramirez set to write the scripts and act as show-runner.

The original Twilight Zone -- a collection of sci-fi and horror stories that featured an array of iconic guest stars -- aired for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964. Host Rod Serling wrote or co-wrote most of the show's 156 episodes.

CBS All Access is the home of the original series Star Trek: Discovery and The Good Fight.
