A little bit of history:

The Twilight Zone aired on the CBS television network from 1959 to 1964. It set a new standard of excellence, with scripts by creator Rod Serling, and
outstanding writers Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, George Clayton Johnson, Jerry Sohl, Earl Hamner, Jr., Reginald Rose and Ray Bradbury.

The show mixed science fiction, fantasy, horror, suspense and occasional humor in a unique blend never before seen on television. Since then it has been
rebroadcast continuously, second only to I Love Lucy, as the longest-running series in TV syndication history. The title itself has entered the language
as a term for something that is easy to recognize but impossible to define, a peculiar moment when the landscape of our lives takes an unmistakable detour
into the unknown.

Producer Carl Amari, decided to present new-time radio dramatizations based on The Twilight Zone and licensed the rights from CBS Enterprises and The Rod
Serling Estate. A lifelong fan of radio drama, Amari knows and loves the best the medium has to offer, from Suspense and Escape to Dimension X and X Minus
One. But his goal is not a nostalgic recreation of radio as it once was. Instead, Amari has commissioned fresh adaptations by World Fantasy Award-winning
writer Dennis Etchison, based on the original scripts preserved in the Serling archives. The result is a powerful, imaginative series designed for the
theatre of the mind. Superbly recorded in digital stereo, hosted by Stacy Keach and starring today’s most remarkable actors, these exciting productions
take the art of audio drama to the next level. They will transport you to a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man, a land of both shadow and
substance, of things and ideas. It is an area which we call .... The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas!

Accessibility Comments: 

The app seems to be fully accessible though there a few buttons that just say button so not sure what these are yet. Each episope can be tapped on and you get details, actors and can hear an episode preview and then there's a download button that will ask if you want to download your purchase. Yes, the 3 free ones have to be tapped on to download to get them on your device. Other than that, hit play to play and stop to stop and come back to that same one later and hit play again and it starts where you left off. The sound quality I found to be pretty good for a small handheld device.
