Larceny On The Lake (Aired July 4, 1974)
Rod Serling started the groundwork for a new radio series called The Zero Hour, which was to have featured Ray Bradbury's story as the opener. Norman Corwin took over the project and it evolved into a suspense radio drama series hosted by Rod Serling. It was produced by StudioHouse, who also produced The Salvation Army program, "Heartbeat Theater". Don Hill produced the series. The Zero Hour was produced in 1973 and featured 5-part stories that ran Monday through Friday, until December of 1973. Each part was approximately 30 minutes long (including commercials). The series was sold to Mutual for syndication. The format was changed to single part shows in 1974, running again 5 days a week, from the end of April through July of 1974.
