In celebration of its 60th anniversary, CBS and Fathom Events are bringing the original The Twilight Zone to the big screen for the first time in history. Taking place on November 14, this one night only event will feature six digitally restored episodes and a new documentary entitled Remembering Rod Serling in honor of the late creator.
“The incredible mind of Rod Serling led to some of the most indelible moments ever created for television, and selecting these episodes was both a great pleasure and a responsibility we took seriously, knowing how much the series means to generations of fans,” Ken Ross, CBS Home Entertainment Executive VP and General Manager Ken Ross said in a statement. Fathom CEO Ray Nutt added, “The Twilight Zone has inspired many filmmakers and storytellers, so it is a great honor to be able to bring these classic stories to the big screen and to offer such an incisive look into the mind of the man who created them.”
