Aural Twilight Zone

Wikipedia: The Twilight Zone was a 2002 nationally syndicated radio adaptation of the classic television series The Twilight Zone. Many of the stories were based on Rod Serling's scripts from the original Twilight Zone series, and were slightly expanded and updated to reflect contemporary technology and trends (e.g., the mention of "cell phones" and "CD-ROMs" which, of course, weren't around when the television show aired in the 1960s). Taking Serling's role as narrator was Stacy Keach. A different Hollywood actor and actress, such as Blair Underwood and James Caviezel, took the lead role in each radio drama. The radio series was produced by the Falcon Picture Group and scripts from the original Twilight Zone were adapted by Dennis Etchison (one episode by Chas Holloway). In Britain it has been heard on the digital channel BBC 7. In the United States, it airs mainly in small markets (with the occasional large market) late at night. It also airs regularly on Sirius satellite radio channel 118, "Radio Classics". Though production has ceased, the shows continue to be syndicated and air weekly.
