Rod Serling - Serling Biopic In The Works

The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling is to be immortalised in a new biopic.
The TV pioneer, who famously created and voiced the opening/closing sequences of the hit sci-fi series, is to be the focus of a new film telling his life story from his days as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army to his rise in the entertainment industry.
The project is being developed with his widow, Carol, with a script by Wall Street co-writer Stanley Weiser.
Producer/director Andrew Meieran tells Deadline.com, "Rod Serling was one of the true visionaries in television history. He single-handedly broke the mold and established television as a powerful artistic medium capable of changing the world when used wisely."
Serling died in 1975 at the age of 50.
