BU Students Enter the Twilight Zone

I bet you didn't know that before Rod Serling created the Twilight Zone, he made "The Time Element," and a famous actor had tried his hand at reading Serling's famous monologues.

On Tuesday night at Binghamton University, students were able to see that clip as well as part of a special Twilight Zone lecture. The theater department hosted Lawrence Kassan, founder and director of the Rod Serling Video Festival, to present Serling's roots, life journey, and continuing legacy. The University theater  will be putting on the "Twilight Zone" this March.  We caught up with the director and Kassan to ask them what they feel Serling's true legacy is.

"Most people know the Twilight Zone, the theme music, but that's probably about it, and they know some episodes," said Elizabeth Mozer, the Director for BU's "The Twilight Zone."

"He was a very moral man. He had a tremendous humanity to him, and I think if anything, we can learn a great deal from that. The Twilight Zone episodes were morality plays, they taught us how to be better people. If anything, we could live up to his standards," said Lawrence Kassan, the founder and director of the Rod Serling Video Festival.

Serling, as many of you know, was raised here in Binghamton, He has more Emmy's in writing for television than anyone in history, and wrote ninety-two of the one hundred and fifty six episodes of the world famous Twilight Zone.

If you'd like to see BU's production, shows are on March 7,  8 , 14 , 15 and 16.
