During Showtime’s winter TCA press tour presentation, Showtime president David Nevins was wrapping up his initial remarks when MacLachlan, in character as Agent Dale Cooper (hair, suit, the works), walked on stage to the “Twin Peaks” theme music and offered the exec “a damn good cup of coffee.” (Nevins accepted it.)
MacLachlan then lingered on stage for a bit, offering up the eerie remark, “May the forest be with you,” before Nevins shooed him away.
“You have to get out of here, before you get us in trouble with David and Mark,” Nevins replied.
In the following session, it was revealed that Lynch will be back to direct every episode of the new series, which came back largely due to numbers. “25 years was the magic number — he pays attention to that numerology in a big way,” Nevins added regarding the resurrection of the cult series.
How is Nevins managing Mark Frost and David Lynch as creators? “More or less writing checks and leaving them alone.”
