Hi Greg!

Just wanted to let you and the readers of your Blog here know that The Twilight Zone from the 1980s has returned to TV on the Cable/Satelite channel CHILLER. My wife scrolled ahead thru the schedule and found that her favorite episode from that version of the TZ, based on your short story "Dead Run" will be airing on February 20th.

I've only read the story, so am eagerly awaiting the broadcast.

Thanks, Mike! Quite a few really good episodes in that series.

Don't hold us to that air date for Dead Run. We've been finding that the episode descriptions in the Guide don't always end up being what shows in that time slot.

And the IMDB is not giving any info on air dates for the show, even though Chiller is showing these daily.

Chiller is showing the episodes totally out of sequence...though my wife just pipe'd up to say that Chiller's own website is still saying February 20th.

If so, it will almost be 23 years to the day since that episode first aired: February 21, 1986.

Don't remind me how long it's been! I thoroughly enjoyed being on the set while they filmed that show, courtesy of my friend, screenwriter Alan Brennert. Alan has a new book out next month that's already gathering great buzz: HONOLULU.
