The 30 Year Old Rod Serling
20 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Rod Serling's services were enlisted by Jane Wyman to write the third installment in this series titled 'The Director' which was aired on September 13th 1955. This was Serling's most successful year prior to 'The Twilight Zone' because he won an Emmy Award for 'Patterns' and wrote for numerous television series in this one year alone.
