The creator of ‘The Twilight Zone’ Rod Serling. The show ran from 1959-1964 with over 150 episodes.

True fans of the cult classic TV series ‘The Twilight Zone‘ (1959–1964) are already aware that the annual marathon begins December 31, 2019. Hyper real fans of the Rod Serling created series, like legendary drummer and bandleader Bobby Sanabria, or filmmaker and marketing maven, Mike Valinsky (we love to shout out our avid supporters), will be watching the minute the first episode kicks off at 6am on the Syfy channel. I’ll simply add that I’ve been a life-long fan of both the show and its brain-trust. 😉
