Details on The Twilight Zone, Courtesy of CBS: The original The Twilight Zone took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. You simply go to the CBS All Access landing page and pick the plan you want to purchase. The franchise has also been licensed to a new stage play set to premiere in December at the Almeida Theatre in London and run through January.
