Rod Serling: The Man Who Knew Too Much

  • Aired: 06/28/2012
  • 21:08
  • Rating: NR
In 1959, Rod Serling, a New Yorker turned Hollywood screenwriter, was the brooding type: a man that could not be satisfied. It was in his own darkness--of having achieved acclaim as well as fame, only to have TV sponsors and executives pull it all out from under him--where he dreamed up 'The Twilight Zone.' See and hear Serling in a vintage interview with Mike Wallace.
