TWIN PEAKS' Double R Diner, Angelo Badalamenti Returning
The place where pies go when they die is returning.
Twin Peaks news site Welcome to Twin Peaks has some reassuring updates on the upcoming Showtime revival of the original 1990-91 ABC television series. The information came from none other than Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne) and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson) during a Twin Peaks panel at Crypticon in Seattle over the weekend.
Here's the rundown of what was learned:
First, David Lynch will be directing 18 episodes of the new Twin Peaks series for Showtime, twice what was originally announced before negotiations with Lynch broke down.
Original Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti, creator of the show's memorable theme and numerous haunting jazz pieces for the series, is composing new music for the upcoming revival.
The Double R Diner, where characters Norma Jennings, Hank Jennings and Shelly Johnson worked on the series, will be restored from original location Twede's Cafe in North Bend, Washington.
In addition to North Bend, the new series will also be filmed in Snoqualmie, Washington, which was used for many of the exterior shots in the original series and the feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
Twin Peaks is expected to debut on Showtime sometime in 2016.
