J.J. Abrams Developing Rod Serling's Final Screenplay as Miniseries


Abrams' Bad Robot Productions has nabbed the rights to the 'Twilight Zone' creator's unproduced script 'The Stops Along the Way'.

More than 30 years after Rod Serling's death, his final work may be brought to the small screen. J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions has acquired the rights to the late writer's unproduced final screenplay, "The Stops Along the Way".

Abrams, through his overall deal with Warner Bros. Television, will shop the script as an event miniseries. No other details of the project, including the premise and what role Abrams will have, are available as of now.

Serling, who is best known for his anthology series "The Twilight Zone", talked about his final work four months before his death on June 28 after a series of heart attacks. "I just wrote 'The Stops Along the Way', which is, I think, a lovely script," he said in his final interview.

The late screenwriter, known as the "angry young man" of Hollywood, won six Emmy Awards during his career. Some of his other notable works were "Rod Serling's Night Gallery", "Planet of the Apes" and "Requiem for a Heavyweight".
