Yes, Twin Peaks tv series was 1 of my favourite tv programmes to be ever shown on tv. My 2 favourite characters in it are FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper played by Actor Kyle MacLachlan,&also Sheriff Harry.S.Truman played by Canadian Actor Michael Ontkean.

I think a Twin peaks tv series fan Convention should be organised to take place in certain hotels in Scotland, such as cities such as Glasgow&Edinburgh, and also towns such as Greenock, Ayr,Largs, and also other towns too.

The first season was one of the creepiest, most disturbing things I had seen on television up to that point; it played by its own rules, did things that weren’t expected, and was everything but predictable. I’m not quite sure why it went downhill (I am guessing: network interference) but once they resolved the opening mystery, I lost interest pretty quickly.

I was in my mid teens when it was on air and I was scared of the show but could not stop watching. I would love if they did a remake or a novel tie in to tell us what the chatacters are up to now.

I adored this show….it was the most original and mind-baffling soapy ever!!!! You certainly never knew what was going to happen next….predictable it was not!!!! Everything about Twin Peaks was completely unexpected and here-to-then unseen on network television…it was definitely one of a kind! The coolest thing to come out of this program was the grassroots mail-in campaign to then-ABC honcho Bob Iger from the fans…people were posting him donuts, logs, cans of creamed corn, etc. with messages of support for David Lynch and his surreal creation’s renewal. (I sent him a book of Indian Headdress Stamps—appropiately re-entitled “Johnny Horne Stamps”—- with the plea “Don’t Stamp Out Twin Peaks!” printed inside! I also forwarded the longest letter of support I ever penned on behalf of a TV show to a network.) Alas, it all failed, but was truly great fun while it lasted. Still have the soundtrack somewhere….what a perfectly foreboding musical score Angelo Badalamenti created for this moody masterpiece.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
