The Desert Sun

More than just 'Twilight Zone' writer, Anne Serling sets the record straight on father, Rod Serling

Eric Chiel has vivid memories of his weekly ritual to watch the sci-fi anthology series "The Twilight Zone." He would sneak into the basement, move the only moveable chair so close to the roughly 17-inch television that it was touching the TV set, climb over the arms of the chair and sit cross legged to have the most "immersive experience" in the dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

Rod Serling and "The Twilight Zone" - A Retrospective of a TV Classic and it's Prolific Creator

The development and execution of The Twilight Zone and its prestigious place in television history is a story of an obsessive need for acceptance on many levels. Exhibit A: Rod Serling, Zone’s creator, executive producer, central writing force, and charismatic host. The show’s popularity preyed upon his endless reservoir of ideas, originally inspired by his obsession with the past and his preoccupation with aging, mixed in with a measure of courage and faith, and the survival techniques he learned in the army.

Rod Serling Undermines the American Dream with the Stories in ‘Night Gallery’

Kino Lorber has persuaded Universal to allow a Blu-ray upgrade of Night Gallery, also known as Rod Serling’s Night Gallery, the supernatural anthology series that functioned as an early 1970s follow-up to Serling’s The Twilight Zone (1959-64). Night Gallery has often been seen by critics, and Serling himself, as something of a red-headed stepchild to the earlier series. Serling chafed over having no control over Night Gallery, whose producers often rejected or rewrote his scripts.
