Subject: Latest word from Scott Frost

Here's some feedback from my last call a couple nights ago
(would have posted sooner, but I was out of town briefly...)
If you'd like to write to ABC, especially to express support
for Twin Peaks, he suggested writing directly to the top.
ABC's president is...
2040 Avenue of the Stars
Century City, California 90067
He suggests that you definitely DO NOT put any mention
of Twin Peaks on a letters' envelope. If they see that
they forward the mail to the Twin Peaks folks and don't
read it themselves.
Some quick answers to small questions...
1. The rumor that ABC has already renewed Peaks for 20
episodes (or any other #) is false.
2. The rumor that anyone else has committed to picking up
Twin Peaks if ABC drops it is false.
3. They firmly believe though that ABC will continue it.
They've proposed to do 26 episodes for next season.
4. They're temporarily more-or-less out of touch with
David Lynch, who's doing post-production work on his
new film ("Wild at Heart") near San Francisco.
5. Scott Frost has shown some of the alt.tv.twin-peaks
messages that I've forwarded to Mark Frost; it seems
Mark already at knew the newsgroup existed, but probably
hadn't seen any of the messages on it. Mark is taking
some time off, and is in New Orleans right now. I believe
he'll be back by the end of next week, and perhaps he'll
offer some comments on our USENET discussion then.
I'd expect most of the people involved with the show to be
taking as much time off as they can in May. If the expected
renewal for next season comes through, they'll be busting a gut
from June through next March.
A footnote about the Frost family in Twin Peaks...
Warren (Dr. Hayward) is the father of the other two,
and has had a long career in acting. Most of
his acting has been on the stage, but perhaps
some may remember him from the film version of
Mark [I trust everyone knows about Mark]
Scott is working on production, probably has a title
of "production assistant" or something similar.
Next season he'll also be a writer, with responsibility
for a TBD* number of episodes.
*TBD = to be determined. Anyone who's had the
misfortune of writing MIL-spec specifications
knows this one well...
BTW, Scott does a walk-on bit in episode [pilot+]5. His
comment about that was that "it'll show why some people are
paid to act and others aren't". I haven't talked to the other
Frosts, but can testify that Scott is a bright guy with a good
sense of humor.
