Rod Serling's Final Screenplay to Become Miniseries? EW

The final screenplay by the man behind “The Twilight Zone” -- Rod Serling -- is being shopped as a miniseries by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, reports EW.com's Inside TV.

The production company bought the rights to Serling's "The Stops Along the Way," the story notes. The idea is to sell the project as an "event" series.

Serling created "The Twilight Zone,” which aired on CBS from 1959 to 1964 and was recently named the third best-written TV show of all time, as previously reported. Serling also wrote and produced many screenplays, including "Planet of the Apes."

The content of "The Stops Along the Way" has remained a mystery since Serling's death in 1975. Serling reportedly mentioned the script in his final interview, saying it was one of his personal favorites among the pieces he had written, but did not reveal what it was about.
