The Storm Episode 00 No Gods To Serve Rod Serling 1951
Director/Producer: Bob Huber
Writer: Rod Serling
Clif Mercer (narrator)
A chaplain struggles with his faith while trapped behind enemy lines with three soldiers.
During World War II, some American army soldiers including a Chaplain get caught behind enemy lines.
An episode from the local live television anthology series "The Storm" on WKRC-TV in Cincinnati, a "TV Dial 1951 Award winning drama." Includes two Camay Soap sponsor segments introduced by weatherman and co-producer Daryl Parks. Overall amateurish direction, cinematography and soundtrack music. The series opening narration sounds like an upset stomach commercial. One of 21 scripts which Rod Serling reportedly sold to the series. This seems to be the only episode available.
Local live television anthology series "The Storm" on WKRC-TV in Cincinnati. Co-produced by Bob Huber and channel weatherman Daryl Parks.
Rod Serling's first Cincinnati TV drama, "The Keeper of the Chair," aired on WKRC-TV's "The Storm" drama series 65 years ago, on July 10, 1951.
Serling was a staff writer at competitor WLW, where he wrote for TV and radio sitcoms, travel shows, documentaries, "Midwestern Hayride" and other lighter programs. So he started writing for "The Storm," a live weekly drama produced by Taft Broadcasting's WKRC-TV in the Taft family's Cincinnati Times-Star newspaper building at 800 Broadway.
Serling would write more than 25 scripts for "The Storm," produced by Bob Huber, until it ended in April 1952. He honed his skills to produce scripts for live network telecasts such as his "Patterns" (1955) and "Requiem For A Heavyweight" (1956), before creating "The Twilight Zone" (1959). "Requiem" was the first TV script to win a Peabody Award (in 1957).
"Keeper of the Chair" had been rejected by several radio series before it was produced on "The Storm," says Nicholas Parisi, who has researched all of Serling's TV and radio scripts for his upcoming book, "Dimensions of Imagination: A Journey Through The Life, Work and Mind of Rod Serling." The episode involves a prison guard who, after 10 years supervising executions on death row, becomes obsessed by the question of whether he has ever executed an innocent man. "This marked the first time that Serling would delve into a potentially controversial social issue -- in this instance, capital punishment -- in his work," Parisi tells me.

Another Serling book -- "Everything I Need to Know I Learned in The Twilight Zone" by Cleveland Plain Dealer TV critic Mark Dawidziak -- will be published in February by Thomas Dunne Books.
Serling was hired by WLW-AM in 1950, after graduating from Antioch College. He quit in late 1951 to freelance from his Springfield Township home on Long Lane. After success writing for live network TV dramas, he moved his family to Connecticut in 1954. They relocated to Los Angeles before "The Twilight Zone" premiered.
He died too young at age 50 on June 28, 1975.
