J.J. Abrams to Develop Rod Serling's Final Screenplay
Nearly 40 years after his death, Rod Serling’s final screenplay is finally getting a shot on-screen. According to Deadline, J.J. Abram’s Bad Robot Productions recently acquired the rights to develop Serling’s The Stops Along The Way.
While details of the screenplay are being kept quiet, the screenplay described by Serling as “a lovely script” is set to be turned into a mini-series. Serling is best known for writing the award-winning series The Twilight Zone, but also received acclaim for his work on Planet of the Apes and Rod Serling’s Night Gallery.
Abrams’ company is responsible for Lost, Revolution and the upcoming Almost Human. The company couldn’t be more aptly titled, as the man seems to be a producing machine with the upcoming Star Wars film on lock and even more television series in the works for the next few seasons.
