Rod Serling was already one of the most acclaimed writers in American television when he created the legendary fantasy series ‘The Twilight Zone,’ which presented speculative fiction with an intelligence unheard of in TV at the time, while addressing many of the hottest issues of the day in metaphors that were clear and telling, but safe from political censorship. The remarkable rise and sad decline of Serling’s career is the subject of ‘Submitted for Your Approval,’ which features exclusive interviews with many people who worked with him, including John Frankenheimer, Buck Houghton, Jack Klugman, and Kim Hunter. —Mark Deming

“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.” —Vince Gilligan

Teleplays
The Twilight Zone 1x01 — Where is Everybody The Twilight Zone 1x02 — One for the Angels   The Twilight Zone 1x05 — Walking Distance  The Twilight Zone 1x07 — The Lonely  The Twilight Zone 1x08 — Time Enough at Last       The Twilight Zone 1x30 — A Stop at Willoughby       The Twilight Zone 1x34 — The After Hours   The Twilight Zone 2x05 — The Howling Man  The Twilight Zone 2x06 — The Eye of the Beholder  The Twilight Zone 2x07 — Nick of TimeThe Twilight Zone 2x28 — Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up  The Twilight Zone 3x08 — It’s a Good Life The Twilight Zone 3x16 — Nothing in the Dark The Twilight Zone 3x24 — To Serve Man The Twilight Zone 5x03 — Nightmare At 20000 Feet

Serling reportedly wrote 90 scripts and he adapted a couple of films (prime examples are ‘Seven Days in May’ and ‘Planet of the Apes.’)


“In 1970 University of Kansas professor James Gunn interviewed a series of science fiction authors for his Centron film series ‘Science Fiction in Literature.’ This footage from an unreleased film in that series featuring an interview with Rod Serling, which wasn’t finished due to problems with obtaining rights to show footage from Serling’s work in television. This reconstruction is based on the original workprint footage that was saved on two separate analog sources since the audio track was separate. Re-syncing the footage was a long involved process as the audio track didn’t match the film and there was substantial sync drift. While not perfect, there’s a lot of interesting information on writing for television in the dialogue with Serling as well as a prophetic statement about his health at the beginning.” —Joel Sanderson

Some epic science fiction landscapes, featuring Roger Dean, Chris Foss, Bruce Pennington, Stephen Youll, and Tim White, taken from the SF Landscape tag in my archives. 

The tag is mostly Roger Dean, to be honest.
