The History of The Twilight Zone

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

The History of The Twilight Zone It’s the first adult science-fantasy anthology series to appear on American television, and is still capable of shocking audiences today. Introduced on October 2, 1959, this entertaining and thought-provoking collection of stories on the human condition was created by Rod Serling, a novelist and fan of earlier works of pulp fiction. Based on provoking social commentary, the show's focus on serious science fiction allowed its writers to get away with creating harsh social commentary on contemporary topics. Among the many societal issues addressed by the show were the topics of human nature, racism, government and war. It also contained an unpredictable mixture of self-contained drama, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, horror, unexpected twist endings and grim outcomes that would never be neatly resolved.
