Created by Rod Sterling, the original Twilight Zone has always been considered the godfather of sci-fi television; the show explored humanity's hopes, despairs, and prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959 to 1964.

A dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity is coming exclusive to CBS All Access this spring.
