Rod Serling's Anthology Series Night Gallery Is Getting a Revival

A few years after Rod Serling ended his run on The Twilight Zone, he launched another supernatural horror series called Night Gallery.

The series ran on NBC from 1969 to 1973 ,and Serling hosted the series. He would appear in an art gallery setting to introduce each segment of an episode by unveiling a painting that illustrated the story.

That was Spielberg’s first professional directing gig.

Guillermo del Toro also talked about the influence that the series had on him saying that the episode “The Doll” scared him the most that he had ever been scared as a kid.
