Anne Serling – As I Knew Him: My Dad, Rod Serling
Biography / May 21, 2018

May 21, 2018 – In this episode, our time machine welcomes aboard the daughter of an American national treasure: Rod Serling. Best known for his ominous exposition in TV’s groundbreaking anthology, The Twilight Zone, Serling also produced landmark screenplays such as Planet of the Apes, Seven Days in May, Playhouse 90’s The Velvet Alley, and Requiem for a Heavyweight. He was a World War Two veteran, jokester, animal-lover, social commentator, prolific writer and — unfortunately — a heavy smoker, which contributed to his early death at only fifty years old in 1975. But perhaps the credit Rodman Edward “Rod” Serling could boast with the greatest pride, is that of loving father. This is the man we’ll meet thanks to his younger daughter, Anne Serling, in As I Knew Him: My Dad, Rod Serling. Far from the dark, brooding, tortured character many have portrayed, this intimate portrait introduces us to a writer, thinker and teacher we would all be proud to know.
