The Serling is a form started in January 2013 by Sean O'Reilly, Krista Jensen, Jesse Neil, David Ebert and Vincent Moore. The form was pitched to a small group by Sean after it became clear that several of the members spent the last day of 2012 as well as the first day of unlucky-year 2013 watching the entirety of The Twilight Zone marathon on TV.

After reprising the original intro to the Twilight Zone series at the top of each set, a suggestion is procured and "a Serling" begins. The form combines elements of a macroscene, montage, and monologue to create a never before seen episode of The Twilight Zone.

The Serling refers to both the form and the team itself, which consists of Sean O'Reilly, Krista Jensen, Jesse Neil, David Ebert and Vincent Moore. It has been coached exclusively by Curtis Retherford.
