Submitted for your approval: CNN promos Serling play in Park!

Submitted for your approval, finally.

Rod Serling tried to dramatize the Emmitt Till story, but his attempts were changed due to outside pressures.

More than a half-century after it was twice censored by network television, Rod Serling's story on the 1955 lynching of Emmett Till and his message about prejudice will finally be told the way Serling wanted.

The original stage script of Serling's "Noon on Doomsday" will be read Saturday at Ithaca College during a conference on Serling's life and legacy. The award-winning writer-creator of "The Twilight Zone" taught at Ithaca from 1967 until 1975, when he died.ill
