Rod Serling
[VIDEO SHORT] Rod Serling: The Man Who Knew Too Much

By TOM McNAMARA

In 1959, Rod Serling, a New Yorker turned Hollywood screenwriter, was the brooding type: a man that could not be satisfied. It was in his own darkness–of having achieved acclaim as well as fame, only to have TV sponsors and executives pull it all out from under him–where he dreamed up The Twilight Zone.

See and hear Serling in an interview with Mike Wallace just before the The Twilight Zone’s first broadcast.
