In 1990, avant garde filmmaker David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet) and acclaimed TV writer Mark Frost (Hill Street Blues) teamed up to create a show that would redefine what the medium could achieve in a one-hour drama. With Twin Peaks, the duo entranced audiences with the town, its characters and central mystery - who killed Laura Palmer? In Twin Peaks, nothing is as it seems, and in Wrapped In Plastic, Andy Burns uncovers and explores the ground-breaking methods that have made the series one of the most influential and enduring shows of the past 25 years.
