Thanks to the TCA Summer Press Tour and a variety of other stories coming out in primetime, there has been a heck of a lot going on. As a result, there were a few stories that slipped through the cracks today. We’re here to do our best to try and correct that.
“Twin Peaks” news – Of course, the Showtime revival of the classic series was a hot discussion point at TCA, but network head David Nevins would not say too much. There is no confirmed episode count, but the show is filming a little later this fall and many beloved cast members will return. As for a release date, Nevins seemed to be mostly stressing patience:
“I want it as badly and as soon as the biggest fans in the world want it … I’m hoping we make 2016. It’s not clear … [Mark Frost and David Lynch are] going to shoot the whole thing and then they’ll start posting. Bottom line is I’ll take it when they’re ready with it, but I’m hoping sooner rather than later.”
Everyone knows that expectations are high for this to be a breakout hit for Showtime. Therefore, we firmly expect it to be something that we are talking about for a rather long time.
“Web Therapy” is over – It’s sad, but it’s true. At least Lisa Kudrow got a chance to do more of “The Comeback.” We’re not really that surprised about this, though, mostly because she got to make a number of good episodes of a show that really never received the support it deserved over the years.
Hopefully, we’ll have some further news soon enough from the TCA press tour. For now, head over here to get some other TV scoop on all we cover sent right over to you, courtesy of our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: Showtime.)
