The Twilight Zone is an American television series created by Rod Serling. The original series ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964 and remains syndicated to this day. As an anthology series, each episode presented its own separate story, often a morality play, involving people who face unusual or extraordinary circumstances, therefore entering the "Twilight Zone". Rod Serling served as executive producer and head writer, having written 92 of the show's 156 episodes. He was also the show's host, delivering on-or-off-screen monologues at the beginning and end of each episode. Orson Welles was originally considered, but the producers felt he asked for too much money. The series was a collection of various tales that range from the tragic to the comedic. They may be scary or just thought-provoking. Most episodes have unexpected endings and a moral lesson. But, no matter what, it's "a journey into a wondrous land, whose boundaries are that of the imagination." Rod Serling, creator and host of the series, won two Emmys for outstanding writing (1960 & '61), and the Golden Globe in 1962 for best TV director/producer. During the first season?âexcept for the season's final episode?âSerling's narrations were off-camera voiceovers; he only appeared on-camera at the end of each show to introduce previews of the next episode.
