The Twilight Zone was a prime-time television show (1959-1964) produced by CBS and hosted by Rod Serling that explored universal themes such as isolation, difference, estrangement, death, life, and the afterlife in fantastically artful—and sometimes haunting—settings. The original television series was noted for its unusual introductory music and visual style, as well as the compelling narratives given at the start and end of each episode by Serling, in order to place the episode into context.

Almost every episode featured a popular actor or actress for its lead character. Some of those include William Shatner, Robert Redford, Don Rickles, Dick York, Jack Klugman, and Lee Marvin.
