What Is THE STARLOST? (An Introduction) – UFTA 001

UP FROM THE ASHES is a podcast about . . .

* THE STARLOST, a TV show from fifty years ago, and we’re talking about it exactly fifty years after its episodes aired…
* SCI-FI IDEAS from THE STARLOST that engage the imagination, even if the budget and the abilities of the people behind the show couldn’t quite produce what they were imagining…

This episode explains and explores what THE STARLOST was, what it was meant to be, and how we’re going to have some fun talking about it!

  • Harlan Ellison, aka Cordwainer Bird, creator of the show and writer of the pilot episode

  • William Davidson, producer
  • Ed Richardson, producer
  • Norman Klenman, writer and showrunner
