The Twilight Zone is a nationally syndicated radio series featuring radio play adaptations of the classic television series The Twilight Zone first produced for the British station BBC Radio 4 Extra in October 2002 with the final show released in 2012 for 176 episodes in all.
Many of the stories are based on Rod Serling's scripts from the original Twilight Zone series, and are slightly expanded and updated to reflect contemporary technology and trends (e.g., the mention of "cell phones" and "CD-ROMs" which, of course, were not around when the television show aired in the 1960s). In addition to adapting all of the original episodes aired on the 1959-1964 TV series, the radio series has also adapted some Twilight Zone TV scripts which were never produced, scripts from other Serling TV productions, and new stories written especially for the radio series. Taking Serling's role as narrator is Stacy Keach. Different Hollywood actors, such as Blair Underwood and James Caviezel, take the lead role in each radio drama.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man.
It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.
It is the middle ground between light and shadow.
And it lies between the pit of man's fears.
And the summit of his knowledge.
This is the dimension of imagination.
It is an area which we call the twilight zone.

The definition comes from the dictionary and it directly concerns one.
Arthur curtis 36 years old and a successful businessman or so he believes.
Mr curtis is about to discover that the line between reality and unreality can be very thin indeed, in fact, under certain conditions, it may be less than thin.
It may be invisible at least in the twilight zone.
And now the twilight zone and our story, a world of difference, starring luke perry with stacy keach as your narrator, I asked you a question all of you.

The studio walked out.
Stumbled is more like it.
What's all this about the studio first things first, jerry come into the study.
Why nora we need to do some damage control.
We sure do can't just wait.
I've waited long enough, I want my money now before he goes off on his next binge.
Now, look, I've explained to this woman that I'm not who you all seem to think I am, frankly, I don't know what to think, but if we don't smooth this over right now today, the network won't, renew your contract, and that will cost us all money.
My name is curtis.
I live jerry stop.
What would you rather I lie to you.
You don't seem to realize the position you're in where do you hide the checkbook these days, I beg your pardon, I'll find it if I have to tear the house down, excuse me, I have to get out of here, jerry jerry I'm going to lay it on the line.
If you lose this part we'll have to drop you as a client.
We can't cover for you anymore, it's beyond that way beyond I'm, sorry, but you're mistaken.
They can shoot around you today.
I'll tell them you came down with something they won't, buy it, but we'll do our best to make it stick.
But come tomorrow.
You've got to be there, jerry bright and early with bells on, I don't know, what's going on god.
Help me, I don't know, what's going on.
You said that jerry enough is enough.
I tell you I I found it get over here.
Now, leave me alone.
He doesn't, look so good.
Maybe we should take him to cedars you're going to sign this check jerry right now before you can pull anything else.
Go on pick up the pen that's.
It then we'll see about the state of your precious health.
Please I'm asking you and I'm telling you sign it.
Jerry I want what you owe me.
His hands are shaking.
Oh, no, he's, not going to get out of it that easily I'll fill in my name in the amount just sign gerald reagan, g-e-r-a-l-d that's, not my name.
R-A-I-G-A-N in case, you've forgotten how to spell too.
But I've never heard that name before in my life.
Maybe he should lie down.
Would you vote back off? This has gone far enough.
I am not gerald reagan.
My name is arthur curtis.
Do you hear me arthur curtis? I work for wait a minute I'll prove it operator.
I'd like the number for davis morton and company, 189 brand street los angeles, yes, I'll hold.
But but make it fast will you? Of course there is, I should know I worked there.
I I've been with them for seven years.
Don't, tell me that don't lean on me, sarah bernhardt, look at his eyes.
I don't think he's faking.
It awfully good timing.
If you ask me help me to get him to the other room, what what is happening to me? What are you doing just closing the blinds don't bother? I was hoping you'd catch a few winks feeling better.
You don't believe me do you it doesn't matter.
What I believe you've been overworked, trying to wrap the season must have been a terrible strain the season, I take that's supposed to mean something to me if it doesn't we're all in trouble, would you like anything some lunch if nora won't make it I'll order out? No.
I don't have much of an appetite.
You need help jerry it's, not in my province.
But I've known you a long time.
And I hate for this to happen it's, not necessary, you know, it really isn't can't.
You see what's happened.
Why don't you tell me, you know what this is a script for what it's all right here.
Take a look cast of characters.
Arthur curtis 36.
A young business executive, happily, married.
Let me see that curtis lives in woodland hills, california with his wife and young daughter, where did you get this it's yours from the dresser here, where you left it after studying your lines last night go on keep reading.
He is married to marion.
Curtis, 33 a charming young woman, typical of that efficient breed, which can manage a house and family and still have ample time for ring.
A bell who wrote this that's, neither here nor there.
Some hack probably the point is the only information you have about arthur curtis is what's written here.
Jerry I really do understand sometimes I'd like to escape myself get away from this turmoil.
The long hours the early calls to a simpler sweeter existence, it's only natural you're telling me it was all a delusion that I'm really somebody named gerald reagan.
A dissolute pitiful, a sweet unhappy man, a square peg in a round hole.
We never should have moved to hollywood burdened with that harpy in there, jerry reagan who wanted to be a serious actor once trying to make a living and find a little happiness.
That's all no.
I won't accept that the life.
I remember it was real.
I wish it were for your sake.
I wish it were.
I have to go jerry and report into the agency, try to rest and forget about the series you won't have to go back.
I just spoke to the studio.
A few minutes ago, they're, cancelling production production on what you may as well.
Give me the script I'll toss it for you.
It doesn't matter.
Now, I'm, sorry.
But arthur curtis is dead.
Well, what's his story.
I don't think it's a story, not this time all better, or should I fix him some milk and cookies he's had it withdrawn from the playing field.
And I can't say, I blame him go on then get out of here, I'll whip him into shape if he thinks a little breakdown is going to let him off the hook, wait jerry well.
What do you know it walks out of my way? Yes, sir.
What is it jerry? I've got to go back.
I told you it's too late for that it's, finished.
I've got to get back to my office here.
If you mean, the set they're, probably tearing it down already and as far as I'm concerned, but they mustn't don't, you see I'll never get back if they tear down the only connection I have to jerry knock it off.
I can't do that jerry careful jerry that's.
My car name open the gate.
You mr reagan I'm in a hurry.
Oh sure sure nice car.
What happened to you now harold? Well, see your name's not on the list anymore.
I mean, reagan's, not that other one you gave me what did you say it was curtis something I don't have time for this.
Hey, did you get fired real sorry to hear it? Or maybe you quit either way, I'm not supposed to stand back, huh? I was just saying, hey, you can't do that put that down? What do you think you're doing what'd? You say, watch your feet.
My sofa, yeah, where are you taking it back to props? You can't? Yeah, I got a work order right here to strike the set you mean, my office which office the low building with the rose bushes.
This is from stage 23., which way is that it's over there.
Hang it right at the commissary.
Take the wall down, not yet, get the desk and chairs, where do you want them? Hold on hold on? Pardon me.
Mr, reagan don't, touch the desk yet or the chair.
No, how come I I have to get something? Oh sure go ahead.
It'll take us a while too bad.
Huh? Nice set, real nice, kind of sorry to see it.
Sally are you still here? No matter.
I don't know where to start, there must be a way there has to be mr reagan who it's kelly.
I thought I saw you come in what happened to my books.
Books, oh, sent back to props by now and my papers and file cabinets even the photos on the desk.
They were pictures of my family.
My wife and daughter were they you mean, they were real.
Give me a few minutes, and maybe I could track them down do they have to do this I'm afraid.
So the studio needs the space, a career, a whole life, packed up while you're out and shipped off to god knows where I had no idea.
I thought it would last nothing lasts in this town, you know that, but I thought you thought you were different the exception to the rule.
Well, I don't blame.
You it's easy to fall into that.
You see what happens to everyone else, but you never think it'll happen to you human nature.
I guess, but you know, the next thing will come along, and what will that be beats me? But it always does you have to have a little faith and the things we we collect over the years and and leave behind.
Oh, somebody also gets some use out of it.
It was never really ours in the first place was it can't exactly take it with you.
No no, I I guess you can now they're, ready to take the walls down now you uh might want to sit somewhere else.
I thought, if I got here in time thought, what nothing you go on I'll be out of here in a minute, just following orders.
Mr reagan, nothing personal.
No, nothing personal at all marriage.
Don't lead me, don't, leave me here.
Mr, curtis found.
Mr curtis, oh there you are.
I thought you'd gone home.
What somebody's here to see you go ahead, mrs, curtis.
Arthur marion, honey.
I don't understand you don't, where have you been? I've been phoning all day marion is it really you? Well, who else would it be? Honestly, sally kept saying you were out out.
What does that mean? She couldn't imagine where you'd gone she didn't, see you leave? I you had some business to attend to I.
I got lost on the way back you did how do you mean it doesn't matter I'm back now, oh, just let me sit down for a second.
These new shoes are why where's your sofa? I won't need it anymore.
Marion let's get out of here.
