Night Gallery

Weekdays at 5 AM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
An anthology series featuring tales of the macabre, each episode of 'Night Gallery' begins with host Rod Serling standing in a creepy art gallery, where he unveils a painting thematically tied to that night's tale. The series features adaptations of classic fiction by authors such as H.P. Lovecraft as well as original scripts, many of which were penned by Serling. A departure from the science fiction that defined Serling's earlier series, 'The Twilight Zone,' 'Night Gallery' keeps its focus on tales of a dark and horrific nature.
