	Scott Frost has been touring to promote his new book about
	Coop, but is back at home at the moment.  Here are some points
	of interest from the phone call I just finished...

	    --	He confirms that Twin Peaks is doing great in the
		ratings -- in all parts of the world except the part
	 	serviced by ABC.

	    --  He expects the show to die.  It seems unlikely that
		ABC will support it, and doesn't think anyone else
		will be willing to pick it up.  Production cost is
		about $1.3 million per episode.

	    --	The final episode of the season (the one it looks
		like we'll see in June) was directed by Lynch.  It
		sounded as if Lynch more or less chucked the script
		and winged it, coming out with a pretty wild episode.

	    --  The final episode will leave plot threads dangling.

	    --  Lynch would like to produce a Twin Peaks movie.  This
		offers some great possibilities...

	You know what the treatment of Peaks reminds me of?  Star Trek.
	It didn't last long on its first pass, but it started a dynasty.
	Will we next have Twin Peaks, the Movie?  Then Twin Peaks, The
	Next Generation?
