As part of the TCA Press Tour presentation for Showtime, Network President David Nevins took some time to talk about new and returning programming. Naturally, the biggest topic of conversation was the return of Twin Peaks, for nine episodes in 2016, all directed by David Lynch.
During the interview, he spoke about how Showtime came to be bringing Twin Peaks back after 25 years, with Kyle MacLachlan leading the show as Special Agent Dale Cooper, knowing the only way they could do it was to get David Lynch to commit to directing every episode, and how they’re just leaving Lynch and Mark Frost alone to do their show that promises closure and other returning cast members, as well as where things are headed with The Affair, his thoughts on the Homeland finale, a new showrunner and change in direction for Ray Donovan, that there is nothing currently happening with Dexter, in any incarnation, upcoming comedies (i.e. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Happyish and Roadies), and shooting the pilot for Billions. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
