Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The second revival of Rod Serling's classic sci-fi/fantasy anthology The Twilight Zone, this weekly, one-hour UPN network effort was hosted and narrated by actor Forest Whitaker. In keeping with the format of the original series, the stories presented herein found ordinary people trapped in extraordinary, other-worldly situations, with a message or moral subtlety built in to the twist ending. And as before, a number of guest stars graced the series, such as Jason Alexander, who appeared as Mr. Death in the opener (at least two different stories were presented per episode). Boasting several veterans of the Star Trek TV franchise in its production staff, this incarnation of The Twilight Zone premiered September 18, 2002.
