Could anyone give me a short intro of this series/movie phenomenon? Only heard of the title and looking through on wikipedia will take me a while.
1950's TV show. Each episode built around a different, usually supernatural, event. Like a creature destroying an airplane mid-flight but only one man notices. Or a man wakes up and the town is completely deserted. All this usually takes place in small-town America. Famous for Rod Sterling's monotone voice-over.
I've watched a handful of episodes recently and they're pretty hit and miss, but the classic ones definitely justify the show's following. If Nolan decides to direct I'd imagine he'd drop the campy aspects and focus on the show's unnerving, dark tone.
