Netflix continues its push to become the only thing that matters in entertainment by teasing streaming series addicts with news that if David Lynch and Mark Frost wanted to continue their beloved cult show “Twin Peaks,” they’d be down with it.
Netflix Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos told Stuff that if the opportunity presented itself, Netflix would “Absolutely!” bring Agent Dale Cooper and the rest of those whack-jobs back.
In the same chat, Sarandos mentioned that he’s been “in talks” with Ron Howard about bringing his dead adaptation of Stephen King’s epic (and nutso) book series “The Dark Tower” to Netflix as well. He said:
I spoke to Ron about it, actually. The last time we talked about it the thing was being kicked about HBO – but it’s no longer there. Once ’Arrested Development’ gets through we’ll keep talking about it.
I honestly don’t think “Twin Peaks” will ever happen, but I wouldn’t count out something else Lynchian popping up on the streaming service as David Lynch has always been talking up a return to serialized storytelling. But if Netflix were to produce a “Dark Tower” series it would certainly be massive undertaking. Would they have the budget for such a thing? I’d hate to see King’s magnum opus shortchanged like his other lesser-than-great adaptaions like “The Stand,” “Tommyknockers,” and like 500 other mini-series that may or may not have been directed by Mick Garris.
