Pre Twilight Zone Rod Serling baseball comedy radio drama being produced

O’Toole From Moscow is the title from a familiar author.

I don’t normally cover radio dramas here, but if it involves Rod Serling, it’s on the radar. The 1955 radio script was produced several years before The Twilight Zone and there are no known recordings of it that exist, so it’s being recreated to air on March 25, 2020.

It’s a screwball romp, with a side of whimsy: At the height of the Cold War in the 1950s, a Soviet Embassy worker fritters away time rooting for the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field, then skips town with a comrade who suddenly becomes the greatest slugger ever for the Cincinnati Reds.

Wonder if there are any plans to stream this anywhere? I’d put down some $$$ to hear it. If you know more, tell us about it in the comments below and/or hit me up on Twitter.
