About Wrapped In Plastic: Twin Peaks and Andy Burns

About Wrapped In Plastic: Twin PeaksIn 1990, avant garde filmmaker David Lynch (Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Dune, Blue Velvet) and acclaimed television writer Mark Frost (Hill Street Blues) teamed up to create a TV show that would redefine what the medium could achieve in a one-hour drama. With Twin Peaks, the duo entranced audiences with the dark side of a seemingly idyllic town, its quirky characters, and a central mystery — who killed Laura Palmer? In a town like Twin Peaks, nothing is as it seems, and in Wrapped in Plastic, pop culture writer Andy Burns uncovers and explores the groundbreaking stylistic and storytelling methods that have made the series one of the most influential and enduring shows of the past 25 years.
