Earlier this week, Mark Frost, co-creator of TWIN PEAKS, gave a talk to a small crowd in which he read a page from his upcoming book THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS – which he described as a collection of documents written by a mysterious unknown person to be revealed by book’s end – from the perspective of Margaret Lanterman, a.k.a. The Log Lady, and he also discussed not only how he and Lynch originally met, but how they reconnected, re-hatched the idea for TWIN PEAKS, and brought it to Showtime.
The reading, especially the part in Lanterman’s voice, will take you right back into the TWIN PEAKS atmosphere, and the story of meeting lynch for the first time is always entertaining, but the real gem here is Frost discussing how the third season came to be. He talks the initial spark, their writing process, and pitching the show to Showtime. As far as I know, this is the most information we’ve gotten to date on the upcoming revival, and though there aren’t any plot reveals, it’s fascinating and in fact spine-tingling to hear Frost talk about it.
My new favorite person in the world, a cat named Jason Eastman captured the talk on three videos that I’m going to be playing on a loop until Frost’s book comes out on October 18th. Check them out, share the crap out of them, and let’s all freak out together, shall we?
