1959 Pre-Twilight Zone Interview with Rod Serling
January 13, 2009
This 1959 Rod Serling interview with Mike Wallace is incredible. Besides Mr. Serling’s flawless style and his smoking on air, this interview is why Rod Serling gets so much coverage here on The Invisible Agent. I love Mr. Serling’s response when Rod’s new project “The Twilight Zone” comes up. Mr. Wallace asks him, “…You’re going to be, obviously, working so hard on The Twilight Zone that, in essence, for the time being and for the foreseeable future, you’ve given up on writing anything important for television, right?”
Little did he know at the time. Check out the interview in two parts below.
