"Night Gallery" TV Series



Syfy will developing a 'reimagining' of the 1969 Rod Sterling horror/supernatural anthology TV series "Night Gallery", from Jeff Davis ("Teen Wolf"), Universal TV and Universal Cable Productions:


"...the new series will explore the dangers of social media and modern nightmares in the digital age..."


The original "Night Gallery" aired 1969-1973, featuring stories of horror and the macabre, with Rod Serling of "Twilight Zone" fame as both on-air host and major contributor of scripts.


Serling appeared in an art gallery setting and introduced the macabre tales that made up each episode by unveiling paintings that depicted the stories. His intro usually was:


"Good evening, and welcome to a private showing of three paintings, displayed here for the first time.


"Each is a collector's item in its own way—not because of any special artistic quality, but because each captures on a canvas, suspended in time and space, a frozen moment of a nightmare."


The series was introduced with a pilot airing November 8, 1969, featuring the TV directorial debut of Steven Spielberg, starring Joan Crawford ("Mildred Pierce").
