The Twilight Zone

Show Guide

The Twilight Zone became the role model for TV anthologies after its first airing in 1959. Hosted by Rod Serling, the parables which usually resided in the world of fantasy or science fiction expertly explored humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways conventional drama cannot. On screen actors featured include soon-to-be-famous actors Robert Redford, William Shatner, Burt Reynolds, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper, Carol Burnett, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, Peter Falk and Bill Mumy, as well as such established stars as silent-film giant Buster Keaton, Art Carney, Mickey Rooney, Ida Lupino and John Carradine. The series was nominated for seven Emmy Awards and four Hugos and won three of each.
