Networks don't produce shows. Twin Peaks is produced by Lynch/Frost
Productions, not ABC. In fact, I think it would be illegal for them to do
so (wasn't there something about Fox having to get a waiver in order to
produce some of their own programs).

The only thing that would be a problem is if the syndication company couldn't
pay enough for the rights to make TP profitable for Lynch/Frost.
