"THE TWILIGHT ZONE" ENLISTS DEWANDA WISE AND JESSICA WILLIAMS

New Original Series Coming to CBS All Access in 2019

VANCOUVER, BC - Jan. 14, 2019- DeWanda Wise and Jessica Williams have entered the fifth dimension. Wise and Williams are the latest to star in an upcoming episode of CBS All Access original series THE TWILIGHT ZONE. The episode will also feature Lucinda Dryzek, Jefferson White and Jonathan Whitesell. Previously announced cast includes host and narrator Jordan Peele, as well as John Cho, Greg Kinnear, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Alison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay and Steven Yeun.

DeWanda Wise currently stars as Nola Darling in the Netflix adaptation of Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It," which will return for a second season in 2019. Previous television credits include FOX's "Shots Fired," WGN's "Underground," "Boardwalk Empire," "The Good Wife," "The Mentalist" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." Wise's film credits include the upcoming comedies "Someone Great" and "The Weekend." Wise executive-produced and starred in "How to Tell You're a Douchebag" and has also appeared in "Spinning into Butter" and "Precious." She is the writer of the short film "Where You Go," and is also an accomplished stage actress, appearing in productions in New York, Los Angeles and regional theater companies across the country.

Jessica Williams is the co-creator of the popular live show and podcast "2 Dope Queens," which have aired as hour-long specials on HBO and will return with four new specials next month. Williams can soon be seen in "Corporate Animals," which will premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival, as well as "Booksmart," and will star, write and executive produce an upcoming SHOWTIME comedy. Her past television credits include "The Daily Show," where she was the first African-American woman and youngest correspondent to date, HBO's "Girls," and Nickelodeon's "Just for Kicks." In film, Williams was most recently seen in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald," Netflix's summer 2017 release "The Incredible Jessica James," and "People Places Things."

THE TWILIGHT ZONE is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Films. Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.

The original "The Twilight Zone" premiered on Oct. 2, 1959 on CBS. The series took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. "The Twilight Zone" became a worldwide phenomenon as it used socially conscious storytelling to explore the human condition and culture of the times. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959 to 1964. The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional dramas could not. Every episode of the original series is available to stream now on CBS All Access.
