"A Twilight Zone ended in nineteen sixty four and then the to you two years later Star Trek the view that engine run very was very much a friend and a protege of rod Serling's in fact he gave the eulogy at rods funeral and and run very was very aware of this offer twice and you couldn't have Star Trek and and he cast it's funny because the first pilot he did a pilot for Star Trek called the cage it was actually shot nineteen sixty four is our Jeffrey hunter as captain pike and it didn't sell the show and so they ordered a second pilot and that's when they got Shatner and and the chemistry between William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy deforest Kelley in the rest of the cast it's just was magical and you could see it from the beginning from the first episode that aired he just knows knew that these people were unforgettable and and this state of forgettable all these decades five fifty years as you said mark also had on than not the originals but I had Jolene Blalock on and then the tall yet no bleach on yeah yeah both of them great great folks but when it was really fascinating again is that run very you know when he came up with Star Trek the next generation he showed that it was the universe he created and you could have other actors and will continue to be successful and now with the new Star Trek movies in the Star Trek series is coming down the pike it's really hot legs and and it's it's such an amazing amazing universe to play and I mean having having come up with stories for captain Picard in for Cork and all these other characters I can speak to just how how vibrant all these characters are and and how wonderful these actors are in again I'm working with them both in the Star Trek universe and in space command Robert Picardo in the number the Star Trek actors and continuing to work with just because these are the nominally talented people and and when you meet them you say gosh I don't I don't want to and I just wanna keep keep working with these guys how would you compare the Star Trek series to the Star Wars Ann Arbor is Star Wars film me yeah you know it's funny the very very different I think you know Chris personally I've by as much as I like Star Wars my I much prefer star track and I think it's much deeper in its woman nation on the real world I think it's got a lot more profound inside I think that clearly it's lasted fifty years so this is a lot to speak to it and then beyond that you know I think that because it was started during a time of great turmoil it wasn't escapism is really commenting on the on the real world in a very in a very meaningful way and because again just with Ross on twilight and we went into science fiction avoid censorship run they did the exact same thing with Star Trek and the other thing this key is Star Wars a science fantasy is set and galaxy long ago far far away it's not meant to be a future that we're going to aspire to or reach which starts with this very much this is the future of this this is really something we might some day be able to accomplish in when you look AT cell phones we look at all these are correct that now we have I mean I I frequently talk about my cell phone is a tri Corder because I can you access the world the worldwide web I can watch movies and TV shows on it it's it's much more like a tricorder the communicator because it has all these things you can do that that run very predictive in Star Trek it's phenomenal where were or are some of the writers of Star Trek today well you know these were the greatest writers on television you know when I saw the ritual Star Trek my here is with those writers and and Robert was smart enough he did exactly what what what about selling it on which is he reached out to the science fiction writers and so that first season startribune Harlan Ellison wrote city on the edge of forever an amazing piece of work George Clayton Johnson he noted Logan's run and fly license and Richard Matheson who again in I am legend many great pieces of work on and on DC Fontana is a great writer David Gerald to troubles troubles and many of these writers are still with us a DC Fontana Harlan Ellison David Gerald as I've just seen them recently and this still in in many cases is still writing this still active Harlan is an amazing writer and amazing man I just brilliant and and so I started getting all these people when I was a teenager because they'd start having Star Trek conventions in the nineteen seventies and soon as I was old enough to go to these conventions and go there and meet these writers and they were as brilliant in person as the nominal in person as they were you know on the on in the news in the work they were doing for television and in fact in some cases I would hire them for instance when I was on sliders I had David you'll come in and pitching we bought a lot of scripts from him so because the thing is they were really looking at the real world looking at life and saying how can I tell a story in Star Trek and I've never seen before that will be something that will move an audience will change their lives forever a great example of a great example there was a story that Harlan Ellison is on start to call the city on the edge of forever a great episode first season episode known every TV show ever done before that the hero saves the girl it was just what happened in television and in city on the edge of forever because the time in the lines have been changed in order for for things we said a right the woman that the curve falls in love with has to die could not only doesn't save the girl he's basically throws are under a truck literally and when I was a kid and saw that I was honest and it not only said to me the world is a much more interesting place and much more challenging place because you can have to come to a decision what's going to hurt you deeply but you have to do what's right that was images that show and in that hour just one hour of television changed my life forever and I realized that as a writer I could do the same thing that I could write something directly taken from real life every move an audience that would that would in Richmond I would say something about real life and that could change them for the better and it's a huge responsibility then and a huge opportunity and that's what Harlan else caught me just from that one hour of Star Trek you're gonna get a kick out of this you may already know this in nineteen fifty three there was a little television series called space command yeah guess who was in that William Shatner wow well yeah it is two three while it was a short lived science fiction show and yeah I've got I've got a kinescope of one of those episodes amazing and what goes around comes around phenomenal and but it's it's just because science fiction gives such an opportunity because it's it's wonderfully we talk about possible even say this is where we can go this is what we can create and you know people don't often think about science fiction this way but it went when Martin Luther king said I have a dream and I see of a future where the sons of slaves the sons of slave slave owners will sit together the table he was telling a science fiction story he was talking about a future didn't yet exist but could exist in the speaking in telling that science fiction story he was quitting possibility and that's exactly what starts active and in fact the shell Nichols who played for the for the quick start track and in Martin Luther king met her and said you must not quit the show because the role you're playing is so important you must you must stand on the show and that's what she did the couple twilight zones in the US nineteen of sixty than sixty three yeah he did Nick of time and nightmare at twenty thousand feet but it wasn't until sixty six one Star Trek popped up that he hit it big how did you get that part Mar well you know it's amazing because you know he was a wonderful actually been in judgment at Nuremberg in fact the Spencer Tracy and it is a very dynamic in a very unusual actor and very handsome and as I said in the first Dr piloted Jeffrey hunter who is incredibly good looking very good actor we somehow is a little colder than Shatner and when they went back to shoot instructor pilot difficult to really didn't want to do the second pilot they were casting about for someone else and we've Shatner was available and he was so dynamic and so intelligent and so on charismatic the cast him and the funny thing was my friend Douglas Hayes who is the one the great tracks of the twilight and was friends with when Shatner we've always been trying to get him in the two pilots for him and chat always turn them down so then he started coming on the call center this is what's going on with you being the Star Trek thing Michelle this is it'll never last yes did they get along did you know the main characters well you know there was a lot of competition between Leonard Nimoy and Shatner and there was a lot of because Shatner expected to be the star it was like the man from uncle with Robert Vaughn and and they've McCallum wells in the second minute banana becomes a star as well that's right the spot became this huge effects figure and and and and intellectual figure and so forth and it was it was a buzz about Spock and stock almost got cut from the show the the network didn't want of a pointed ears they really were very nervous about looking so devilish and by then you know run very sectors guns with with with that character but but we've center in new anymore we're very competitive and chatter would be cutting Spock's lines in one of the more lines this box but ultimately over the decades they became very very good friends and and Shatner wrote a book about a boy in recent years March stay with us we're gonna take a break we're going to come back and talk more about the fiftieth anniversary of Star Trek and then I want to get involved in some of the things you're doing on you too what an amazing way.

"Fifty AM and ninety four one FM. And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space command qualify for a TV or a movie Oscar category. TV EMMY, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous gorgeous statue, Ray, Bradbury one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys from news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff holding the globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen morning, George good to have you with us. More. I have a question. Sure. Why did why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season for and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We know funny because recently when rod conceive wrestling conceiver twilights initially thought, it was going to be an hour show, and he actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that he wrote were our scripts but finally decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being expanded to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the Hitchcock show. And so they thought that they might be able to enlarge the audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really a half a season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Yeah. Highlights on really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilight on all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much everyone agrees that it needed to go back half dragging at. There's a great hour long episode called on Thursday, we leave for home the stars James Whitmore and rod swimming wrote it, and it's it's just great. It's a terrific but then for the fifth season the fifth and final season. They went back to a half hour thirties were actually twenty twos. Weren't they? Closer to like twenty seven. There were only. They're only fewer commercials back. Then. Those days parliament now, don't they? Sure, do but back laid you most of the both have our was was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette. Much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle got him in the long run. He died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy he got a lot done in the time. He had you. Sure. Did he he pleaded more in his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home Johnny Carson. Or isn't it? Travis. Travis good. They have. Hope you're doing. Well, you hear me? Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions for Mark. Sure. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a series series. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel significantly watch it, and in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. And we'll be putting posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we visited the show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rocking roller. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quill. And so I'm by by the next few months, I'll write the entire twelve hours. And then we'll just we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares they've gone kickstart throw some money our way, and that'll be popsy part of one full of this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much less money. Than the network hallmark God. Because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars. An episode episode is one show. Yeah. One hour, and but they can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree, female dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world or buying shares. It's a it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it I cast it. I should it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is just wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill mummy like Doug Jones. And Robert the cartoon Mira Furlan was box lightning initial Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you have to use an actor was just on some hit show on the. W who can't act or women? That's not the CW. But they get the network. It's who you get the cash. No, you don't. And and I don't wanna have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality, like they went to sporran, they have to reach the level of spirituality. And I think that's the thing to focus on for your project. I'm in hardest myself, and I I've done a lot of monster typing and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast Sifi so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I I just like hearing Lynn somebody's doing creative processes like this. Yes. And and and you know, when when I talked about, spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personal beliefs are, but I think if if time this is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And but you have to be a Christian, you can be a Buddhist or. Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any Theus. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every face or and every culture, and it's basically just be kind kind of your family kinds of people you love and be kind on the street. You know, if someone's trying to get into a parking space. There's a garbage can blocking them over across the street move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life in small ways, it has a ripple effect. You don't Robert Davi? Mark have yesterday news work who were close friends with them. So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you. Thank you for that. He's got one of those faces that everybody recognizes of course, of course, let's go to Rick truck. Driving in New Hampshire. Welcome to the program. Hi wreck. Go ahead, sir. Oh, thank you for taking my call. Nice to meet you good conversation tonight. You. Couple of questions. Please, sir. Yeah. The twilight zone I used to see is it got that twirly little thing. Black and white. Yes. Yes. Are you still using that that fame and your goose show that all yeah? On the new twilight zone, they're using original same in that. And those those motifs yet whether so I kinda they're they're gorgeous. Yeah. That's my bring. Yeah. Bring you a lot of people attention to the black hole. You know, did you believe aliens? When you first started writing ear Europe strips that you believe in any space off creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not in terms of UFO's or any of that? But but I think that life probably is throughout the university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like very fertile fields grows all sorts of crops super thank you rack. Appreciate it. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes. I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what's really was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. You know, it's when something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle. And rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore says he works hard to possibly could any. He he pulls it off. And it's an amazing amazing thing. I just you go back to those original shows, and there's just their jewels. Their amazing let's go to beaver Utah. Marie with us. Hello marie. Go ahead. Are you there actually with? Their stock. The next generation, Marcus. Okay. It was Nevoso that was fit in coach trouble troubles. So yes, of course, it's a class. That's a great up. So that was the only original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in I saw not long ago, and it's a great upset in tackling. We were shooting the shell Nichols house. She played Hora individual Star Trek. There was a bowl of trebles on on on. So it's a really fun really really fun episode. But the guy who well, David, Gerald. You know, them all Mark. Yep. Yep. Yep. They're my heroes. These writers are just wonderful. I mean as soon as I was old enough. I went and win search of them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command. When I meet with network, executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there by what I'm doing. And any really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got millions of fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are creating series, you know, with children's network that I'm now creating where I'm going to create six new series with six major children, and these are people who've done the greatest hits in television. And when I invite them to come aboard they want to because they want the freedom that this offers. They want the freedom that they can write what they wanna right. They can say what they wanna say. They can we there's one show that we're going to be creating where we can reach out to all these wonderful actors, the we that we love there's an actress named Barbara Dane who was on mission impossible and space nineteen ninety nine and a friend of mine knows. All right. A role for role for her and why not super do a game show? I want to redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they tell the person what is on compassion was or whatever. And they they were each one was five dollars when a flipped the card that was just unbelievable as they hit the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at was brought to you by some perspiration company. They they had that splattered across there. Television. Oh, it's great. I love fact, that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties..

Died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy got a lot done in the time. He had he did more in his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny carson. Isn't it? Travis Travis Willis doing well. Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious serious. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel, actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be putting posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we in the show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rocking roller. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quill. And so I'm by the next few months the entire twelve hours. And then we'll we'll just shoot all of it and insure with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience, just you know, finances, they buy shares they've gone kick-starting throw some money our way, and that'll be part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show from. Much less money than the network Homar God. Because for instance, Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen fifteen million dollars. An episode episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour. And but base command I can do it so far I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars. And with that I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned we'll be starting to Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree gmaiLcom. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world are buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it shoot it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill mummy like Doug Jones and Robert Picard Furlan spotlight in shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They say no you have to use an actor was just on some. Hitch on the CW who can't act or women. That's not the CW. But they get the network at say who you get the cash you don't. And and I don't wanna have that over my head. And you have another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they win the sporran. They have to greet the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that the thing focus on for your project. I'm in hardest myself. And I I done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast Sifi so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing Lynn somebody think creative processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, love one another. I believe that. And you have to be a Christian. Buddhist or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any Theus. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every faith or and every culture, and it's basically just be kind kind of your family because of people you love and be kind on the street, you know, someone's trying to get into a parking spaces a garbage can blocking them over across the street and move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life in small ways as ripple effect. You know, Robert Davi Mark have you seen who were close friends with them? So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you. Thank you for that. He's got one of those faces that everybody recognizes of course, of course, let's go to Rick truck. Driving a New Hampshire. Welcome to the program. Hi, rick. Go ahead, sir. Oh, thank you for taking my call. I likes to Markelle good conversation tonight. Onto a couple of questions. Please, sir. Yeah. The twilight zone I used to see it got that twirly little thing. Black and white. Yes. Yes. Are you still using that that the N your show that all yeah? On the new twilight zone, they're using original fame and that and those those motifs. Yeah. Whether so I can't it to their gorgeous. Yeah. That's bring. Yeah. Bring a lot of people attention to the black hole. You know? Did you believe aliens? When you first started writing ear Europe strips that you believe in any space space creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not into of UFO's or any of that? But but I think that life probably throughout the university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like Larry for tile field grows, all sorts of crops super thank you, read, compression. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what surly was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. You know, it's when something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle and rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore as he works harder to possibly could any he pulled it off. And it's an amazing amazing thing. I just you go back to those original shows, and there's just their jewels. Their amazing let's go to be for Utah marines with us. Hello marie. Go ahead. Are you there actually? But stock the next generation, Marcus. For that show. Okay. It was Napa that was fit in called trouble trouble. So yes, of course. That's a great up. So that was original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in not not long ago, and it's a great upset shooting the shell Nichols house. She played a in Star Trek. There was a bowl of triples on. So it's really fun. Really really fun episode. The guy who well, David, Gerald. You know, Mark. Yep. Yep. Yep. They're my heroes. These writers are just wonderful. I mean soon as I was old enough. I wouldn't win search of them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command aiding when I meet with network executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there by what I'm doing. And and they really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got millions of fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are creating series, you know, with children network that I'm now creating where I'm going to create six new series with six major children as these are people who've done the greatest hits in television. And when I invite them to come aboard they want to because they want the feedom that offers they want the freedom. That they can write what they wanna right. They can say what they wanna say. They can we there's one show that we're going to be creating where we can reach out to all these wonderful actors that we that we love there's an actual name Barbara Bain who was on mission impossible is based nineteen ninety nine and friend of my nose. Right. Right. A role for role for her and why not super? Yeah. Do a game show. I've never done. I wanna redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they in the you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they tell the person what is our compassion was or whatever. And they they were each was five dollars when the card that was just on the lead as they hit the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at you know, so if it was it was brought to you by some perspiration company. They had that splattered across their. That's right television. Oh, it's great. I love the fact that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties. And it's just I was just watching Alfred Drake in kiss me Kate and Kenneth scope of broadcast was done live in the fifties. So it's it's I think you I think the internet is such an enormously powerful and wonderful thing, and it can be it can have negative sides. Of course. But I think it's brought the world to us the way that was not possible before the one thing that it did lack in in you notice that right away is it did not have a presence of minorities all in. They just for some reason they didn't even recognize that. And that was crazy. Taste anything. There's a great of twilights on called the big tall. Wish that starts. I haven't Dickson has a most of the cast is black and rod Serling load. It's terrific. And there's a little boy in it who's wonderful that and I was trying to find him every time I wrote new additions of the twilight zone companion trying to find him and finally about two weeks ago. I found him he owns a Cajun restaurant here in Los Angeles. And so I'm going to be going there. And see if I can get them to do an audio commentary of that upset I think it would be just a riff does. He know you're coming in there. I've talked some of his employees. So we're definitely gonna have an amazing time when we made his name is Steven Perry. And he's a phenomenal actor he was he was he was every bit as good as Billy mummy, and but African American and I can't wait to meet him..

"And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space. Command qualify for a TV EMMY or a movie Oscar category TV, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous gorgeous stats rate. Bribery, one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding globe. And all that stuff. That's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Steven. Good morning. Good to have your with us. More. I have a question shirt. Why does why did? Twilight zone Goto our long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because usually when rod conceived, let's conceive the twilights initially thought it was going to be an hour show. He actually wrote up for pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that he wrote were our scripts but finally decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being extended to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the Hitchcock show. And so they thought that they might be able to a large audience like standing twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really I have season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Twilights really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilight zone all have one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much everyone agrees that it needed back half dragging at. There's a great hour long episode called on Thursday for home. This starts with more. And rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific. But then for the fifth season the fifth and final season. They went back to a half hour. The thirties were actually twenty two weren't they? Closer to like twenty seven. They're only they're only few commercials back then those days. Now, don't they? Sure, do but back then they mostly most have our was was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. He had a cigarette as much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle. What got him in the long run? Died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really lets older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy got a lot done in the time. He had the he pleaded more in his time than most people do at ninety. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny carson. Isn't it? Travis travis. Doing. Well. You hear me? Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions for Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movies that you're making is is it just one love your to be a series series. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've used to channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and that's free. And I put the first hour base command on on my channel actually, watch it. And in fact, we have seen with initial Nichols today. We'll be posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rocking roller. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also quill, and so I'm by by the next higher twelve hours, and then we'll just shoot all of it and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares. They've gone kick. Start some Lenny our way, and that'll be popsy part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much. Less money than the network Homar guard because prince Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars an episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but I can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars. And with that. I was able to the to our pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned we'll be starting to kick start a campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree gmaiLcom and send them all the information. It's and people around the world or buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, you know, the the cast is wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Doug Jones and Robert Picard when Furlan spotlight in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They say no you have to use an actor was just on some hits. On the CW who can't act or whatever that's not the CW. But they get the network at say who you get the castle you don't. And and I don't want to have that over my head. And you have another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they win their sport. And they have to kinda greets the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that's that focus on for your project. I'm in artists myself, and I've done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really a fan of scifi so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing when somebody's in creative processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that and you'll have to be a Christian Buddhist. Or or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic raciest.

The Star Trek the next generation, Marcus. For that show. Okay. It was never. So that was called trouble travels. Oh, yes. Of course. It's a classic. That's great up. So that was original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in tax on not not long ago. And it's a great upset in tackling shooting. The shell Nichols house. She played a little Star Trek. There was a bowl of triples on.

I wouldn't win search for them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command dating when I meet with network, executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there what I'm doing. And and they really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got millions of fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are creating series, you know, with children network that I'm not creating where I'm gonna create six new series with six major, Chevron is these are people who've done the greatest hits in television.

Command qualify for a TV EMMY or a movie Oscar category TV, EMMY, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous, gorgeous statue, Ray, bribery, one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys from news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff holding the little globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen mornings are good to have your with us. More. I have a question. Why did why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because originally when rod conceive ransoming conceiver twilights initially thought it was going to be an hour show, and he actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone for the show got actually picked up and the first three of those were our scripts the plainly decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it at the half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being extended to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the cock show. And so they thought that they might be able to a large the audience by standing twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really I have season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Twilights on just really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilight zone all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much everyone agrees that needs to go back half. I was dragging at. Though, there's a great hour long episode called on Thursday for home the stars James Whitmore and rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific. But then for the fifth season fifth and final season. They went back to our thirties. We're actually twenty two weren't they they were actually closer to twenty seven. They're only they're only few commercials back then those days. Now, don't they do? But the back then they mostly most was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette is pretty much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle in the long run. Died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy he got a lot done in the time. He had did he pleaded more in his time than most people do at ninety. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home Ajami Carson, or isn't it? Travis. Travis Willis doing well. Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious serious. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel, actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be posting from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we the show going maybe seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rocking roller. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also prequel. And so I'm by the next few months the entire twelve hours. And then we'll just we'll just shoot all of it and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares they've gone kick-starting throw some money our way, and that'll be popsy part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much. This money than the network Homar God because for instance, is that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars. An episode episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but base command I can do it so far I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars. And with that I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares space command they can Email me at Mark Zicree, female dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's m people around the world or buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it stood it, there's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill, let me like the Jones and Robert mccarter Furlan was box lightning. Michele nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you have to use an actor was just on some hitch. On the CW who can't act or whatever that's not the CW. But they get the network. Let's say who you get cash. No. You don't. And and I don't wanna have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they went to spoil, and they have to kinda greets the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that the focus on for your project. I'm in artists myself, and I've done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast Saifi so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing Lynn somebody think created processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And but you have to be a Christian, you can get Buddhist or. Or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic atheist. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of golden rule pretty much in every every faith or and every culture, and it's basically just become the kind of your family kind of people who love and be kind on the street, you know, someone's trying to get into a parking space. There's a garbage can blocking them across the street and move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life and small ways it has a ripple effect. You know, Robert Davi Mark have you seen who were close friends with them? So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you.

And those those motifs yet whether so I kinda they're they're gorgeous. Yeah. That's my bring. Yeah. Bring a lot of people the catch into the black hole. You know, did you believe aliens when you first started writing ear Europe scripts that you believe in any space creatures of any kind? Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not into or any of that? But but I think that life probably is out university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like very fertile field grows all sorts of crops super thank you wreck. Appreciate it. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what's really was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. You know, it's something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle in rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore as he works hard to possibly could any he pulls it off.

And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, love one another. I believe that. And you have to be a Christian Buddhist. Or or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any theorist. I mean kindness is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much every every faith or every culture, and it's basically just become the kind of your family kind of people you love and be kind on the street. You know, if someone's trying to get into a parking spaces a garbage can blocking them over across the street and move the garbage cans, and it's just putting that into practice your life and small ways it has a ripple effect. You don't Robert Davi, Mark? Have you seen whom we're close friends with them? So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you, George.

When you first started writing years Europe strips that you believe in any space off creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not into view of foes or of that? But but I think that life probably throughout the university. Now, no planets are pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like Harry for tile field. You don't grow all sorts of crops super. Thank you read. Capri. She it I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what surly was able to pull off.

But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command meeting when I meet with network executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there what I'm doing. And and they really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got million fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are cleaning series, you know, with children network that I'm not creating where I'm gonna create six new series with six major shoulders.

"And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space. Command qualify for a TV or a movie Oscar category. TV EMMY, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous gorgeous statue, Ray, Bradbury one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast-to-coast. Good morning. Stephen good morning. Good to have your with us. More. I have a question. Why did why did? Twilight zone to hour long episodes on season four, and how did he think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because usually when rod conceive ransoming swing conceiver twilights initially thought it was going to be an hour show any actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that were our scripts that finally decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being extended to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the Hitchcock show. And so they thought that they might be able to a large the audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really I have season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Twilights really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilight zone all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much. Everyone agrees that needed to go back half dragging at. There's a great hour long episode called on Thursday for home. This starts with more. And rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific. But then for the fifth season of final season. They went to a half hour thirties were actually twenty two weren't they? Closer to twenty seven. They're only they're only few commercials back. Then those. Yeah. And now, don't they? I do but the late you mostly both. That was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette all the time, and he was a four pack a day smuggle in the long run. I mean. I mean, he died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really let's older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy he got a lot done in the time. He had heard that he he did more in his time than most people do at ninety. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny carson. Isn't it? Travis. Travis good. Doing. Well. Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions the Mark. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one it's going to be a serious series. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and that's free. And I put the first hour of space on on my channel, actually, watch it. And it's actually shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we envision this show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rock and roll. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quill. And so I'm by by the next few months, the entire twelve hours. And then we'll we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares they've gone kick-starting throw some money our way, and that'll be part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show. For much less money than the network Homar God because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars an episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but I can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the to our pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned we'll be starting to kick start a campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree, g mail dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world or buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast one forecast of amazing science fiction actors like let me like Doug Jones, and Robert Picard when Mira Furlan loose box Lightner in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you have to use an actor was just on. Some hitch on the CW who can't act or women. That's not the CW. But they get the network at safely get the castle. You don't. And and I don't want to have that over my head. You have another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like that. They win the sporran. They have to reach the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that to focus on for your project. I'm in hardest myself. And I I've done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast site by so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing when somebody think creative processes like this. Yes.

Right. A row for role for her. And why not that's super do a game show? I've never done. I wanna redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they in the you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they, you know, tell the person what is occupied was or whatever. And they they were each was five dollars when a flipped the card that was just on the lead as and they hit the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at. It was it was brought to you by some perspiration company. They had that splattered across their all time television. It's great. I love the fact that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties. And it's just I was just watching Alfred Drake in kiss me Kate, and it was Kenneth scope of of broadcast was live in the fifties. So it's it's I think YouTube, I think the internet is such an enormously powerful and one full thing it, can it can have negative sides. Of course. But I think it's brought the world to us in a way that was not possible before the one thing that it did lack in and you notice that right away is it did not have a presence of minorities at all in..

An episode episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour. And but space command, I can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the to our pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree gmaiLcom. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, you know, the the cast is wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill mummy like Doug Jones, and Robert mccarter Furlan response Lightner in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They say no you have to use an actor was just on some hitch. Show on the CW who can't act or women. That's not the CW. But they get the network at say who you get cash. No, you don't. And and I don't wanna have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they went to spoil. They have to kinda greets the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that the thing to focus on for your project. I'm in artists myself, and I done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast site by so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing Lynn somebody think creative processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And you have to be a Christian Buddhist. Or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any theorist. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every faith or and every culture, and it's basically just kind kind of your family because of people who love and be kind on the street, you know, someone's trying to get into a parking spaces a garbage can block them over across the street and move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life in small ways as ripple effect. You know, Robert dovey Mark have. Yes. We're close friends with them. So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you. Thank you for that. He's got one of those faces that everybody recognizes of course, of course, let's go to Rick truck. Driving a New Hampshire. Welcome to the program. Hi wreck. Go ahead, sir. Thank you for taking my call. I nice to Marquette good conversation tonight. Onto a couple of questions. Please, sir. The twilight zone I used to save. It got that twirly little thing. Black and white. Yes. Yeah. Are you still using that that fame and your show that? Yeah. On the new twilight zone, they're using ritual. Same in that and those those motifs yet, whether so I kinda they're gorgeous. Yeah, bring. Yeah. Bring a lot of people the tension. Do like the black hole. You know? Did you believe aliens? When you first started writing ear Europe strips that you believe in any space space off creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not in terms of UFO's or any of that? But but I think that life probably throughout the university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like Larry for tile field grows all sorts of crops super thank you wreck appreciated. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what's really was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. It's when something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle and rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore as he works hard to possibly could any he pulls it off. And it's an amazing amazing thing. I just you go back to those original shows, and there's just their gills their amazing. Let's go to be for Utah marines with us. Hello marie. Go ahead. Are you there actually? That star the next generation, Marcus. For that show. Okay. It was Napa that was fit in called trouble trouble. So yes, of course, it's a classic. That's a great up. So that was the only original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in not long ago, and it's a great upset in tackling shooting. The shell Nichols house. She played in Star Trek. There was a bowl of triples on. So it's really fun. Really really fun episode. Guy who well, David, Gerald. You know, Mark. Yep. Yep. Yep. They're my heroes. These writers are just wonderful. I mean, if I went and win search of them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command meeting when I meet with network, executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there by what I'm doing. And and it really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got millions of fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are creating series, you know, with children's network that I'm not creating where I'm going to create six new series with six major children, and these are people who've done the greatest hits in television. And when I invite them to come aboard they want to because they want the feedom that this offers they want the freedom. That they can write what they wanna right. They can say what they wanna say. They can we there's one show that we're going to be creating where we can reach out to all these wonderful actors that we that we love there's an actual name Barbara Bain who was on mission impossible is based nineteen ninety nine and offended. My nose. All right. A row for role for her. And why not super? Yeah. Do a game show. I've never done. I wanna redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they tell the person what is on compassion was or whatever. And they they were each was five dollars when the card was just on the lead as and they had the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at was brought to you by some perspiration company. They had that splattered across their all time television. It's great. I love the fact that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties. And it's just I was just watching Alfred Drake in kiss me Kate, and it was Kenneth scope of of a broadcast was done live in the fifties. So it's it's I think YouTube, I think the internet is such an enormous. Powerful and wonderful thing, and it can be it can have negative sides. Of course. But I think it's brought the world to us the way that was not possible before the one thing that it did lack in and you notice that right away is it did not have a presence of minorities all in. They just for some reason they didn't even recognize that. And that was crazy..

"And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space. Command qualify for a TV EMMY or a movie Oscar category TV, EMMY, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous, gorgeous statue bribery, one one for the Halloween the TV movie of that. I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen good morning. Good to have your with us. Mark. I have a question. Why does why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because originally when rod conceive ransoming conceiver twilight initially thought it was going to be an hour show any actually wrote up four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that he wrote were our scripts the plainly decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being standing to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the Hitchcock. So and so they thought they might be able to a large the audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really I of season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. Twelve I really didn't work as well. As our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilights all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season evergreens that needed so back for half. I was dragging at. Though, there's a great hour long episode called on Thursday for home the stars James Whitmore and rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific episode. But then for the fifth season fifth and final season. They went back to our thirties were actually twenty two weren't they actually closer to like twenty seven. They're only they're only fewer commercials back then those days. Now, don't they do? But the back then they mostly most was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette as much all the time. And he was a feel four pack a day. Smuggle got him in the long run. Died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty. And which is the new thirty amazing. The boy he got a lot done in the time. He had assured that he he pleaded more and his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny Carson number. Isn't it? Travis. Travis Willis doing well. Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious serious. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and that's free. And I put the first hour faith and on on my channel, actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be putting posting from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we visited the show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rock and live. I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quell. And so I'm by by the next few months, the entire twelve hours. And then we'll just we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares they've gone kickstart. Interesting money our way, and that'll be potsy part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much less. Money than the network Homar God because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars. Nets game of thrones is over fifteen fifteen million dollars an episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but base command can do it so far as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars. And with that. I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned we'll be starting to kick starter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares space, they can Email me, Mark Zicree gmaiLcom. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world are buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But but I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know. You know, the the cast is one full cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill me like the Jones and Robert mccarter Furlan those box lighter in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They say no, you have to use an actor was just on some hitch show on the CW who can't act or whatever that's not the CW, but they get the network at sale you get castle. You don't.

Thousand nine hundred nineteen in terrorism and Syria and most of the president indicating by the way that possibly slowing down. The sixty day withdrawal from Syria, and in fact, doing a complete one eighty thing. In fact, he never said that we were going to get out of Syria. Lickety-split just liberty. Stupid New Year's Eve and guns. This one not from run, it seems I don't see those billboards as much as you used to those billboards that were in English and Spanish and the terrified kids were cowering and looking up in the sky and bullets were coming downward. The sort of giving people the impression that a bullet comes back to earth at the same velocity that it goes up in which it does not. But anyway, that's the science physics actually, well, Kansas man, planning to fire a gun into the air midnight on New Year's Eve accidentally shot himself right in Johnson. A man who was planning to shoot his gun into the air. I'm everyone stand back my plan, and this just as crazy enough to work with to fire this firearm this pistol into the air the Kansas City. Police department of Kansas responded to a shooting around midnight in the nine hundred block of blah, blah, blah. Who cares? A man wanted to celebrate New Year's Eve by firing his new twenty two caliber handgun into the air people could maybe here at a block away. Instead the man accidentally shot himself in the stomach as he sat the gun down. So there you go. The man is expected to recover, and they're they're gonna go here. Locally in California. No reports of anything here in LA. You know, what I mean that would empirically I shouldn't say that the anecdotally, it would seem that what used to be a pretty consistent headline on July fifth and January second that someone somewhere has a kid or a dog or kitty or someone who was injured by a falling bullet, which is at that point. It's unless. If it fired into the air, and it hits you it's falling. It's not the velocity of the bullet. All right. So listen close if you want to hear about the rampage in Santa Barbara, then the listen really close like we have to go back. The the rampage happened on Friday four dead total three murdered one killed by Santa Barbara swat, which they call special enforcement team. But we have to go back and learn about David Gerald McNabb. David Gerald, McNabb was a county of Santa Barbara sheriff's department employees. He was a custody deputy for the agency from July of a one to March of two thousand twelve when he voluntarily resigned shortly after that he was arrested and charged by Oxnard police and convicted of felony domestic violence may two thousand fourteen. So he's resigned from Santa Barbara police department, but he's effectively with a DVD. Conviction. He's unemployable in law enforcement. So we do not know what David McNabb did between after he got out. I don't know how long sentence was fast forward to Friday or actually we shouldn't. I shouldn't say it like that. Fast forward. To the day before Friday. The former deputy has a younger brother named Brian McNabb. Brian McNabb lives in a separate residence. David McNabb the older brother former deputy, he lives at the same place with a sixty three year old man relationship, unknown is mother and his sister. They all lived in the same place. So the younger brother Brian McNabb before the deadly stabbings on Friday, the younger brother had assaulted, another family member at his own home in Santa Maria, the house where the rampage happened is an Arca if you know Santa Barbara county or up there so in Santa Maria, the younger brother had assaulted, a unidentified family member at his home. So that happened Friday. David McNab, the former deputy and convicted DVD guy he beat and stabbed a sixty three year old man relationship, unknown as they say. His mother and his sister to death. So allegedly he killed three people before being shot by the deputies deputies responded to the home that McNabb shared with all the victims Oak Hill road or cut the nine one one caller also lived at the home and a discovered one of the victims covered in blood before fleeing the scene and calling for help. Authorities said that he was still there armed with a rifle when the Santa Barbara sheriff's office swat special enforcement team was brought into take him into custody. They tried less than lethal rounds didn't work. He was shot after he continued quote continued to pose an immediate threat both quote as he got into a confrontation with deputies. According to the sheriff's office. He was later pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital. Curricula last arrest in case you're wondering if he was convicted of domestic violence and got out of jail in may of two thousand fourteen he may have gotten under jail just a couple of months a year ago, regardless he had no legal right to possess a firearm, nor to live in a house with a firearm. So if it was not his it was still illegal for him to be in that house. And if it was not his it was illegal for him to grab it. And that that after the about, you know, pretty major violations of the law in murdering three people that being said firearms shouldn't have been involved. So now the Friday night massacre is resolved there's three dead to relatives of David McNabb and a sixty three year old man, again relationship, not now, we don't know if this was a stepfather whatever, but he killed his own mother his own sister, and the sixty three old men, and he stayed there at the residence possibly lying in wait. We don't know. But Santa Barbara deputies killed him. He died at the hospital. Remember the? The younger brother Brian McNabb who assaulted a family member at his own home in Santa Maria the day before Friday. Well, he it was released yesterday. He's been booked into Santa Barbara county jail on fifty thousand dollars bail two days after the killings for suspicion of battery causing serious bodily injury. And so because we don't we because we were sitting here with a dry erase board. We can't connect except the victims that we can connect to the older brother, the the man his and then the sh the shooter's mother and sister killed by the older, brother. Dave McNabb that we know. But the younger brother Brian McNabb assaulted a family member. We don't know who he assaulted. We don't know if he assaulted one of the victims or if he assaulted is older, brother, David. We don't know. But Brian McNabb is the apparently one of two lone survivors in the McNabb family, and he has been booked in Santa Barbara county jail on fifty thousand bail fifty thousand dollars Bill two days after the killings for assault on another family member. So we don't know if that family members deceased or what? So I that's as simple as I can put it that's as clear as I can make it, but a rampage on Friday night that happening up north of Santa Barbara. I haven't seen a heck of a lot about the news in the news. But there you have it when we come back a little little more on PG any and whether or not murder is the case that they gave them for the campfire up there in paradise California them some background on this. If if you're if you're hearing reporting about that story as if the state of California's attorney general is somehow. Groundbreaking? Attorney general who wants to bring the powerful to heal and put the heads of PG in jail for murder. That's not at all what it is. So we'll we'll get into this right after right after is significant, but the significant thing actually happened in two thousand ten so I'll tell you what this is about an why it's part of the reason the power bills are going to Jack up in two thousand nineteen is John and Ken show Brian suit, filling in KFI AM, six forty more stimulating talk.

"david gerald" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"Pasadena. We lead local live from the KFI. Twenty four hour newsroom. I'm rosacea Rivera. KFI AM six forty four stimulating talk. It is John Ken show. Wards January first twenty nineteen Brian leeann. For John will be back in fact tomorrow with Google pool winners and the announcing the beginning of the new Google pool may not necessarily be tomorrow. But the twenty nineteen gulp will will be commencing forthwith after the winner is determined tweeted out if you weren't watching any of those inane New Year's Eve live show from CNN or any of those, and you you miss this CNN didn't employ Kathy Griffin. This year. They had Anderson Cooper and his, and I guess they must be really good buddies. Andy Cohen from I think the network. He doesn't couple of things on me. I forgot but wow. It's your sounds like he and Anderson spent a lot of time together they had all kinds of stories and they were taking shots in the air. And the whole thing it really missed that. Because I'm sure half the people tuned in just because they hated Kathy Griffin. I think CNN's you realize that the entire reason they paid her one hundred and fifty thousand bucks for four hours work live work was because people were tuning in just to get anger Kathy Griffin. So otherwise, if you were angered at how many awesome stories Andy Cohen had about hanging out with Anderson Cooper, and like ordering room service and stuff like that. Then that was your show over NBC there Lester Holt, the the nightly news anchor. Carson daley. And Chrissy Teigen slash Tuygan as hosts for the for the show Leslie Jones from Saturday Night Live. Apparently there there was originally a rumor that Leslie Jones was going to provide the humor on the CNN broadcasts. But that the CNN's president Zuckerberg would not do it because she's an NBC thing. And so he didn't want to deal with NBC thing on that deal. Meanwhile, though, the guy that did co host is NBC universal property, but I'm already too much inside baseball. What I'm getting to is. I tweeted out a quick twenty second movie. Chrissy Teigen whose best known. I guess is a model. I don't buy only know the controversy about her name is that what she is. Not Rivera why she famous she's like the mayor of Twitter. Really, I'm I'm I beg to differ. Many have said that at dark secret places the best Twitter follow and that I'm the mayor footer, but I'll you know what let's agree to disagree. What did you see what happened to her? Yeah. She hitting the Jones from Saturday Night Live. It was a driving rainstorm and she didn't have an umbrella Leslie Jones, did, but it wasn't a regular umbrella that sort of low disk almost like a. Frisbee. It was that like nose cone shaped clear plastic umbrella, Leslie Jone Jones said, and as it struck midnight, Leslie Jones has really tall leaned over and down to hug, Chrissy Teigen and one of the arms one of the metal support. You know, tension supports that the umbrella went right in her left eye. I mean, she was wincing like she lost the I. And then she she a few hours ago. She said, I'm okay. But but anyway, I tweeted out the video, and I mean, it literally Zucker. Yeah. Zucker suck. I'm sorry. Zuckerberg guy who's watching us our laptop camps. And so if you're still on Facebook. And so anyway, it looked like if you took a metal rod and poked it into somebody's eyeball intentionally. It couldn't have been more of a square shot. Then Chrissy Teigen took from Leslie Jones. So that was a highlight. Also, the other highlight from NBC was that they messed up their New Year's Eve things so badly, and they were wandering meandering around with so little stuff to do. But they still found a way at eleven fifty nine and forty five seconds in Manhattan in Times Square. They still found a way to not show the countdown or not show the ball dropping and miss New Year's Eve, and no one can figure out why. And we were just we don't want her daughter staying up till midnight Pacific time, the whole thing. So we're watching the east coast feed just to get a feel of New Year's and the whole thing. And that was the weirdest thing. I might try to find this. During the break. But the weirdest thing is that in in the time between like a eleven fifty five and midnight. There's always a singer comes on and sings imagine by John Lennon right before. And I don't know when this tradition started. I'm not sure I think it was the same year that they started flying the b two stealth bomber the Rose Bowl, which will be nineteen fifty-six. But a singer. I never heard of before my daughter and her. Baby something rather forgotten the name, but it's raining sideways really called. She comes out in this barely covering herself. Dress silver dress long cut in the leg. But the crowd was absolutely silent. It was like literally there's a million people. They're getting rained on the whole thing. But you could have heard a pin drop. It was there was not any of the normal buzz or partying or anything. It just looked like an, but you can only appreciate it. If you hear it. Bay Rex baby re re Wreksa Wreksa REX HA. That's right. Yeah. Who who here's tuned into popular culture? I'm out. I'm that's it. I'm out, but whoever she was horrible job really horrendous job on that. But who cares? You're supposed to be drug when you're listening supposed to have a beer, beer, drums, and so besides beer goggles. So meanwhile, there is some progress being reported by Fox News in DC between the president and the democratic leadership which will be official here few days as as reporting just a few minutes ago four hours ago as he fight over the federal government shutdown entered the new year, President Trump on Tuesday expressed his desire to make a deal with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi over funding for his border wall. He said as I read you all the president's tweets from two thousand nineteen the entire year's worth he said a couple of hours ago border security in the wall. But quote thing close quote and shutdown is not where Nancy Pelosi wanted to start her tenure as. Speaker. Let's make a deal question, Mark. So some would say and. I don't have a copy of the deal in front of me. But but some would say that the first person to ask to make a deal has lost as given up at some point. And I'm saying if you're on big Billy's us tractor lot. And you say let's make a deal. It means that you're gonna pay a price that you're you've it's not so important to you that you would actually walk off the lot. And that's where you need to be. And so there are some saying that's the equivalent of Trump's surrendering saying, let's make a deal. In other words, you're saying that a wall is a nonstarter negotiating a wall. I mean, surrendering a wall is a non-starter here. There's gonna be a wall there's going to be some kind of structure or whatever. And then a couple of hours ago, he's saying let's make a deal. So we'll see how the future speaker of the house, and she's she's hours away or a data halfway from being sworn in as speaker. Nancy Pelosi is we'll get to that here in a couple of seconds and a couple a couple of days the rampage that you may not have heard of interesting because her dealing with we had dandruff comeback. Our talking to us about a fire in Santa Ana and the circumstances are domestic violence. Call back on Saturday man, arrested booked he gets out on Sunday, the thirtieth also is handed the temporary restraining order. We don't know what happened after that. All we know is the resident said he lived in was burning this morning, and there were two dead bodies in their case. So that's what we know. Well, this this one is a non spousal domestic abuse. Thing that started a couple of days ago. Brian mcnabb. Former jailer in Santa Barbara county, or they say detention deputy, whatever they said, but that nannies jailer anywhere else. Brian McNabb was arrested on suspicion of battery causing serious bodily injury and booked into Santa Barbara county jail on fifty thousand dollars bail two days after the killings. Sheriff's officials said this is the newest information to be released in the case of forty three year old David Gerald McNabb a former Santa Barbara county sheriff's custody deputy allegedly killing three people before being shot by deputies will armed with a rifle. So David Gerald McNabb. Was a twelve year jailer. And he worked as a custody deputy for Santa Barbara county, July two thousand one to March of two thousand twelve he voluntarily resigned. The county. He was arrested by police in December permanent department in two thousand twelve and convicted of felony domestic violence in may of two thousand fourteen Yvonne terribly resigned. For a couple of different union reasons. And all that because he knew that administratively he was going to be fired by the department because of the arrest. Well, what happened after that? And what happened up there is the it was ugly. And we're not hearing about a heck of a lot down here. But now that we have more information I'll tell you about what happened up in Santa Barbara killings up in Santa Barbara three dead. And then the killer killed by Santa Barbara deputies, then I'll give you the details of this, right? After this break. It is the John and Ken show Brian suit filling in KFI AM, six forty more stimulating talk. Russell.
