On October 2, 1959, a unique and extraordinary television series was launched: Rod Serling’s inimitable The Twilight Zone. Fifty years later, the Paley Center in association with Food For Thought Productions will present a star-studded staged reading of "The Masks," a classic episode from the series that originally aired March 20, 1964. This was the first and only episode directed by a woman—actress, director, writer, and producer Ida Lupino. Audiences will now have a chance to see this memorable Serling script brought to life by Lucie Arnaz, Laurence Luckinbill, Katharine Luckinbill, Robert Walden, and Fritz Weaver, directed by Antony Marsellis. Fans might recall that Fritz Weaver appeared in several Twilight Zone episodes, including the unforgettable “The Obsolete Man.”

In association with Food For Thought Productions

For a private dinner with the panelists, join us for PALEYAFTERDARK.


Lucie Arnaz, Jeremy Hollingworth, Laurence Luckinbill, Katharine Luckinbill, Robert Walden, and Fritz Weaver
