The 27 Year Old Rod Serling
23 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Rod Serling wrote the episode, 'At Ease', which was aired on December 15th 1953 for this series just shy of his 28th birthday. He was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to write for television in his 20's before he won his Emmy Award for 'Patterns' in 1955.
