J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company just picked up the rights to Rod Serling's final, unproduced screenplay, The Stops Along the Way.
Details on the plot remain secret, but if it came from Serling and has been picked up by Abrams, it's got to be dark and creepy. Rod Serling, of course, created and wrote The Twilight Zone, recently named the third-best written TV show of all time by the Writers Guild of America. He was also behind Night Gallery, the more supernatural and "horror" anthology series that came after The Twilight Zone.
The plan is to bring The Stops Along the Way to television as a limited-run miniseries. Abrams has not said if he will be directing the project, or just producing, but it seems like Bad Robot is aiming for a spot on the 2013-2014 schedule.
