Chats on the Past: Arlen Schumer on the Twilight Zone

July 14th, 2022

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dusk is for delightful discussions! Join us for a Live discussion with Twilight Zone scholar Arlen Schumer as he takes you on a guided tour, via episode clips and images from both the series and the surrounding popular culture, of an off-the-beaten path that led Rod Serling into…The Twilight Zone!  

 

It’s well-established that growing up in Binghamton, New York, greatly influenced the later works of the writer/creator of the legendary television series The Twilight Zone, Rod Serling—but little known of the three mid-1950s years Serling spent in Westport, Connecticut, before he moved to Hollywood in 1957. Yet in that brief time, Serling not only came to overnight success as a television playwright, winning three Emmy Awards in a row, but experiences from those Westport years would resonate years later in some of the greatest episodes of his magnum opus.
