We all know that The Twilight Zone has been released commercially in every possible format, from VHS Tape to Blu Ray disc. And most will likely know that all three seasons of Rod Serling’s second most famous series, Rod Serling’s Night Gallery, is also readily available on DVD. And we hope that most visitors to this site are aware that Rod’s “lost” Western series, THE LONER, was “found” at last, and released in its entirety on DVD. But what about a dozen other television series to which Rod contributed scripts? And while the most successful feature film that Rod ever wrote (well, co-wrote), PLANET OF THE APES, has never been difficult to find, what about his lesser known feature film work?

Courtesy of Nicholas Parisi’s ROD SERLING: HIS LIFE, WORK, AND IMAGINATION, following is a list of every Serling-scripted production that is known to exist AND to be obtainable in one format or another. Some of these titles have been commercially released. Some can even be found on YouTube. And several are known to circulate amongst rare film collectors. While we cannot vouch for any of these websites, a few places that are worth browsing for copies of these shows are: www.robertsvideos.com; www.oldies.com; www.thefilmcsa.com; and www.classicmoviesdvd.com.

For a complete list of Rod’s produced teleplays, screenplays, and radio scripts, please check out Nick’s book – available at the above link.

Happy hunting!
