The Twilight Zone debuted on the CBS television network on October 2nd, 1959. Created, narrated, and mostly written by the iconoclastic and visionary TV writer Rod Serling, the sci-fi/fantasy anthology series ran for five mind-blowing years. During that run, the show’s name, its eerie theme music, and even Serling’s distinctive speech cadences became — and still remain — catch-all badges for weirdness, irony, horror, and the surreal. In the annals of television, The Twilight Zone is as close to immortal as it gets. —Ron Kretsch, Dangerous Minds
Here is the orginal pilot with a long pitch from Rod Serling to sponsors explaining the show, and previewing the first season up front. [hat tip to Metafilter user timsteil]
Rod Serling’s final interview, March 4, 1975. Not knowing that he has less than four months to live, Rod weighs in eerily on awards, prejudice, censorship, compulsion, immortality, final unproduced screenplay The Stops Along the Way (which J.J. Abrams bought), (not) planning ahead… and crying.
by Rod Serling, 1957
“You want your work to be remembered. You want it to outlive you. My favourite show ever was The Twilight Zone and I think about Rod Serling, [who] started that show 54 years ago this year. It long outlived him – he passed away in 1975 – but there’s kids who haven’t been born yet who will know the phrase ‘the twilight zone’, and hopefully will be watching those wonderful episodes. I can’t say that’s what will happen [with Breaking Bad], but you wanna have that kind of immortality through your work. That would be wonderful. I’d feel very blessed.” —Vince Gilligan
