Adam Scott will appear in a stand-alone episode in the Twilight Zone reboot. 

Scott is en route to the fifth dimension in CBS All Acces’ upcoming Twilight Zone anthology helmed by Jordan Peele. While plot and character details are kept under wraps, the episode titled “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” could be a possible homage to the 1963 episode, “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” which starred William Shatner. In the episode, Shatner plays a man who sees a gremlin on the wing of an airliner but can’t get anyone else on the flight to believe him. It was also parodied in the Simpsons Halloween installment in 1993.

Peele is set to serve as executive producer on the horror anthology alongside Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez. He will also host and narrate the horror series.

Scott joins the previously announced Sanaa Lathan who will be the star of an episode called “Rewind.”

The series is expected to debut in 2019.
