Twilight Zone: New Trailer Drops Adam Scott Into an Iconic Sci-Fi Story

Adam Scott in Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone is coming to CBS All-Access on April 1, and a new trailer for one of the new series' first episodes has been released. While the series will feature several new stories, this trailer debuts the show's take on "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet," a remake of one of the most iconic episodes from the original Twilight Zone.

In the trailer for the Jordan Peele-hosted streaming series, Adam Scott takes on the role of an airline passenger who starts to see threats that may or may not be real in the middle of his flight.

The trailer shows a number of moments from the episode, including some moments that tie into today's ubiquitous fears about traveling as well as the omnipresent TSA. From the body-scanning to the cavity searches and unease around other passengers, the trailer covers it all.

However, it doesn't reveal whatever Adam Scott's character is afraid of, although he mentions that he has the evidence to prove that something is wrong.

The original episode, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" starred William Shatner as a man who had been released from a sanitarium after treatment for a nervous breakdown. He boards a plane and sees a gremlin-like creature on the wing, but he's unsure if it's in his imagination or reality.

The story, which was originally written by Richard Matheson, was famously remade in Twilight Zone: The Movie, with John Lithgow in the lead role. It's also been parodied in everything from The Simpsons to Peele's sketch show Key & Peele.

While there are no signs of gremlins in this trailer, there's no telling who, or what, Adam Scott's character sees or who he might be talking to.

Executive produced and hosted by Jordan Peele, The Twilight Zone is slated to premiere on April 1 on CBS All Access, 60 years after the premiere of the original series on CBS.
