    Shame he doesn't do more tv work. Twin Peaks was by far one of the most creative things I've seen on the air.

    Anybody hear if he has plans to ever do tv again?





    Thanks.

    We probably won't be seeing any new Lynch on tv anytime soon. Mulholland Drive was meant to be a series, but the nice folks at ABC decided it was too long and weird of a pilot for today's viewers. ABC kept the rights to make it into a series, but 6 years later the chances of it being greenlighted are nil.

     INLAND EMPIRE will debut in Venice at the end of summer. The best way to ever get Lynch back on tv is by convincing the network pinheads that there is an audience for intelligent and beyond-the-norm projects, so show your support by going to see the movie when it is released.

    ABC must have some horid contract involving Lynch. I know that originally Lynch/Frost got a two show deal with ABC and when TP was cancelled, Lynch vowed not to do TV again. Due to the contract he was forced back and gave ABC On the Air, which was purposely so wierd that it was immediatly cancelled.

    When you think about it, Lynch doing TV would be like Fellini or Bergman doing TV.

    Ah, but now with all these hit series like 24, Lost, Prison Break, etc. doing well in the past few years, there could be hope. 'Lost' doing well being their best chance.
