The Twilight Zone aired on the CBS television network from 1959 to 1964. It set a new standard of excellence, with scripts by creator Rod Serling and outstanding writers Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, George Clayton Johnson, Jerry Sohl, Earl Hamner, Jr., Reginald Rose and Ray Bradbury.
The show mixed science fiction, fantasy, horror, suspense and occasional humor in a unique blend never before seen on television. Since then it has been rebroadcast continuously, second only to I Love Lucy as the longest-running series in TV syndication history. The title itself has entered the language as a term for something that is easy to recognize but impossible to define, a peculiar moment when the landscape of our lives takes an unmistakable detour into the unknown.
Recently, producer Carl Amari decided to present new radio dramatizations based on The Twilight Zone and licensed the rights from CBS Enterprises and The Rod Serling Estate. A lifelong fan of radio drama, Amari knows and loves the best the medium has to offer, from Suspense and Escape to Dimension X and X Minus One. But his goal is not a nostalgic recreation of radio as it once was. Instead Amari has commissioned fresh adaptations by World Fantasy Award-winning writer Dennis Etchison, based on the original scripts preserved in the Serling archives. The result is a powerful, imaginative series designed for the theatre of the mind. Superbly recorded in digital stereo, narrated by Stacy Keach and starring today's most remarkable actors, these exciting productions take the art of audio drama to the next level. They will transport you to a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man, a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. It is an area which we call ... The Twilight Zone™ Radio Dramas!
The Twilight Zone™ Radio Dramas can be heard on hundreds of radio stations from coast-to-coast syndicated by The Westwood One Radio Network and on XM (channel 138) and Sirius Satellite Radio (channel 118).
