Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but a new adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand may be moving forward. Reports indicate the years-delayed adaptation may have found a home at CBS All-Access under New Mutants director Josh Boone.
The onslaught of classic sitcom revivals continues. Next on the factory floor is none other than Murphy Brown, as CBS is putting together an official reunion series with original star Candice Bergen and creator Diane English.
It looks like Star Trek isn’t the only sci-fi icon finding new life on CBS All Access. Network heads confirm that a Twilight Zone reboot is in development for the streaming branch, as produced by Get Out director and Key & Peele favorite Jordan Peele.
