Officially, one, "I Sing the Body Electric!"

Unofficially, possibly four, give or take, and depending on who you believe. As far as has been given us to know, it is hashed over in this thread here: http://www.raybradbury.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000977.html which contains links to articles on the subject. As for the rest of Ray's side of the story, that will have to wait till Sam Weller's book appears.

Unless you're counting the 1980s revival of the series, in which case there are two more:

The Burning Man - adapted by J.D.Feigelson with Ray's personal blessing;

The Elevator - screenplay by Ray.

The first "episode" of The Twilight Zone which was not approved by the network. The third episode, Where is Everybody? was.


"Love Forever!"

Doug, a useful post - but in the context of this thread it should be made clear that Bradbury had no connection to either "The Time Element" (first Twilight Zone) or "Where Is Everybody?" (first proper TZ).

(Except that Bradbury allegedly believed "Where Is Everybody" to be based on one of his short stories.)

Bradbury had a problem with "Where is Everybody" after it aired. I don't think he saw the earlier scripts.

In the context of this thread, you may be right!

Who should play Rod? Will they enact a scene where Matheson, Beaumont, Bradbury and Johnson meet Serling?

Amazing to see ANOTHER New Zealander with something important in their sig. Also amazing that they live in Cambridge, Massachussets. How kind to give their full street address, in case we want to visit or write.

I was wondering if that poster could really be from Massachusetts. Everyone I've met from there speaks better English.
