ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Witness if you will a writer: Rod Serling. This is the story of a man with a vision -- a vision of what television could be if only men ceased to operate out of fear and greed. But Rod Serling has a plan. He will use the camouflage of monsters, both real and imagined, to reveal what cannot be said about society, and what Mr. Serling himself cannot say about his own fears and regrets. And those monsters dwell in a state of mind called The Twilight Zone. The cast of characters: Nicholas Parisi, author of “Rod Serling: His Life, Work, and Imagination,” Amy Boyle Johnston, author of “Unknown Serling: An Episodic History vol. 1,” and Mike Pipher, archivist of the Rod Serling archive at The Bundy Museum of History and Art in Binghamton, NY. Also a recommendation: “As I Knew Him: My Dad, Rod Serling,” by Anne Serling.
