If you want to watch Jordan Peele‘s new Twilight Zone reboot, above is the first episode right now for free.

Watch “The Comedian” starring Silicon Valley‘s Kumail Nanjiani as a stand-up comic who gains an extraordinary power (note: NSFW language).

“I was terrified when they first asked me,” Nanjiani says of the episode. “I loved the show so much, but it’s an iconic thing to take on. I saw Jordan, and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I’m the right person, it’s so dark, I’ve never done anything like this.’ Jordan was like, ‘You’re perfect. You have to do it.’ He gave me the confidence to go ahead.”

You’ll notice the episode is nearly an hour long. The new CBS All Access series executive produced and hosted by Peele will have variable running times between 30 and 60 minutes. Twilight Zone premiered today on the streaming service.
