“You are about to enter another dimension.
A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind.
A journey into a wondrous land of imagination.
Next stop, the Twilight Zone!”


The Twilight Zone debuted October 2, 1959. A few weeks before the series launched, the Mike Wallace interview with Rod Serling discusses his career, family, censorship and his new venture as executive producer and writer of this now iconic television production. Today, I wonder how many only know his distinct voice and image from Disney parks featuring “The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror”.  This interview is a fascinating but all-too-brief look at the brilliant, insightful writer.
