The Latest: Showtime open to more ‘Twin Peaks’ if Lynch is
PASADENA, Calif/January 05, 2018(AP)(STL.News)— The Latest from the TV Critics meeting in Pasadena, California (all times local):
Showtime programming executive Gary Levine says if David Lynch is willing to tackle another season of “Twin Peaks,” the channel is willing to listen.
But given the “Herculean” effort that Lynch put into reviving the cult drama last year, including directing all 18 episodes, Levine said he’s unsure Lynch wants to do it again.
The original “Twin Peaks,” starring Kyle MacLachlan as a FBI agent investigating a murder in an offbeat town, aired in 1990-91 on ABC. It picked up 25 years later in the lives of the characters in its return on Showtime.
Levine told TV critics Saturday the door at Showtime is always open to Lynch or his fellow “Twin Peaks” creator Mark Frost to discuss the show or any other project they have in mind.
Television viewers will soon get an inside look at what President Donald Trump likes to call the “failing” New York Times.
Showtime announced Saturday that filmmaker Liz Garbus is producing a four-part documentary series on the Times, “The Fourth Estate,” that will debut in May.
Documentary-makers were given access to meetings and discussions at the Times as it shaped coverage
