Well, now that we all know who killed Laura Palmer (uh-huh), ABC can finally 
remove TWIN PEAKS from its schedule without fear that its executives will be
(dare I say) "lynched" by angry mobs.  It may be gone by Christmas.

So what do we, the loyal fans, have to look forward to?

Spinoffs!  That's right, new shows to take advantage of TWIN PEAKS, err, 
popularity, while returning to a more conventional television format.
So David Rind and I decided to raid to computers in ABC's program development 
department.  We discovered the following treatments, plus some rather 
embarrasing corporate memos which we are reserving for our own use.  (You'll 
be hearing from us, Mr. Koppel.)

David Rind did all the illegal breaking-and-entering; I just transcribed what 
he found.  That's Dee-Ay-Vee-Eye-Dee Arr-Eye-Enn-Dee, pronounced like it looks.
He's at rind@hscfvax.harvard.edu  [I *told* you you'd get full credit, David!]

Here are some of the shows we can expect to find on ABC's schedule next fall:
