Coffee & Cigarettes With Rod Serling

Observations and Comments on a TV Legend by Mitch Santell

Rod Serling was often called “the angry young man of Hollywood.” Recently, my Mrs. And yours truly started watching some of the old episodes of the Twilight Zone.

The key in my view to Rod Serling’s deep talent was deeply rooted in his ability to write. Pour yourself a fresh coffee or hot tea on this lovely Sunday morning (hope things are safe where you are) and watch and listen to the exchange of Mike Wallace and Rod Serling on CBS from 1959. It is worth your time to watch and listen.

Rod Serling, who died in 1975 at 50, was arguably the most influential writer in television history, and write he did: Hundreds of radio plays and teleplays, then of course “The Twilight Zone” (CBS, 1959-64). This vast trove of work is the subject of “Rod Serling: His Life, Work and Imagination,” by author Nicholas Parisi and published in October. Parisi, 48, became a Serling aficionado in the early ’80s, and now — as a board member of the Rod Serling Memorial Foundation — is one of his greatest champions.
