Bob Miller, Flatiron Books president and publisher, announced today that Flatiron Books will publish The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks, written by Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost. The novel reveals what has happened to the people of the iconic fictional town since we last saw them 25 years ago, and offers a deeper glimpse into the central mystery from the original series. Mark Frost will also co-write and executive produce the upcoming highly anticipated Twin Peaks sequel with Lynch, a limited series set to air on Showtime in 2016. The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks will be published in advance of the Showtime series, and is set to go on sale late 2015.
Of the acquisition, Mark Frost said:
“Bob Miller and I have enjoyed a fantastic fifteen year relationship in publishing. This has long been a dream project of mine that will bring a whole other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life, for old fans and new. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks has also been picked up around the world—Pan Macmillan will publish the book in the UK, with Mondadori publishing in Italy, and Kiepenheuer & Witsch publishing in Germany. The Finnish rights have been sold to Otava, while Companhia das Letras have picked up the rights in Brazil.
