‘Twin Peaks’ May Get A Sundance Sneak Peak Before Showtime Debut
So far we don’t have a premiere date yet for Showtime’s new Twin Peaks series, but we have heard that director David Lynch may be making an appearance at the Sundance Film Festival.
While nothing is concrete at this stage, Deadline has reportedly learned that there have been discussions for the new version of the acclaimed 1990’s TV Series from ABC to be showcased at the Robert Redford founded fest which is seeing an increasingly larger small screen presence. However, it is unclear whether the talks will lead to a Twin Peaks event at Sundance. If it happens, it could be a surprise screening and one of the signature features of the festival, so far an element of surprise has been a part of every major Twin Peak announcements and have all been controlled by Lynch.
Another source with knowledge of the potential Sundance situation says “conversations are ongoing” in regards to the presence for the Showtime show in Park City later this month. However when reached for comment Showtime denied that Twin Peaks would preview at Sundance.
Details on the new series have been scares but what we do know is that the Showtime’s Twin Peaks picks up 25 years after the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, the new series, written by creators Mark Frost and David Lynch. We know that before Sundance kicks off, there is a Twin Peaks TCA panel set for January 9th, but it is unclear whether footage from the series will show there.
The new Twin Peaks series will also see the return Kyle MacLachlan who will reprise his role as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper; we will also see the return of several cast members including, David Lynch himself who will reprise his role as FBI Agent Gordon Cole.
The Sundance film festival will run from 19 -29th January 2017
