Did 2019's Twilight Zone Copy a Story by Philip K. Dick?

I have read a story by Dick entitled "Small Town" that is about a man who can manipulate events in his town by adjusting his small model of it. It seems that the newest Twilight Zone installment features an episode called "A Small Town" that has a very similar presence. I wouldn't have minded an acknowledged adaptation of the story, but not crediting Dick makes me a bit upset. Or is it just coincidence? What do you think?
 
The original story's summary:

The Twilight Zone story features a handyman uncovering a model town in a church attic.
 
If they did, it was very clever to hide it in the second season after the disastrous first season ensured no one would check that out.
