On Saturday night, October 3, 2009, the PBS affilliate WSKG staged live performances of two beloved Twilight Zone episodes. "Mirror Image" and "Walking Distance" were both penned by Rod Serling and have an apparent connection to Binghamton and his childhood.
Producer Brian Frey and director Bill Gorman, in partnership with a dedicated cast and crew, delivered a memorable show to a live studio audience and to viewers in their living rooms.
The episodes followed Serling's original scripts where possible and adapted to the live studio setting where necessary. The production did a masterful job of staying true to the spirit of the originals.
