Twin Peaks is an American Emmy Award-nominated, Peabody- and Golden Globe-winning television serial drama created by David Lynch and Mark Frost, first broadcast on April 8, 1990 and last broadcast on June 10, 1991. Although created by Lynch and Frost, most of the 30 episodes are by different writers and directors. The show is set in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington. The primary filming took place in Snoqualmie and North Bend, Washington.

The central plotline is the story of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and his investigation of the murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a popular local student and homecoming queen whose plastic-wrapped body is found on a river bank.

Twin Peaks was originally broadcast on ABC and, in its short first season, was one of the network's most successful television programs. In its longer second season, low viewer ratings led to cancellation. Despite this, it became a pop culture touchstone, and inspired a film prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992). The series also later influenced several television series, including Northern Exposure; Picket Fences; Wild Palms; American Gothic; The X-Files; Carnivāle; Lost; Desperate Housewives; Wolf Lake; Eerie, Indiana; and Night and Day. Many of these were said to be "the next Twin Peaks" due to their examination of the human condition and the dark side of American suburban life.

Because of its success, in the mid-to-late 1990s, Bravo re-aired Twin Peaks in the U.S. from 2003-2004. Currently, NBC Universal's horror-themed cable channel Chiller, which launched on March 1, 2007, is airing the series. Twin Peaks was ranked on TV Guide' magazine's "Top 25 cult shows" at No. 20, and one of the "Top 50 Television Programs of All Time" by the same guide at No. 45.[1] In 2007, Channel 4 (UK) ranked Twin Peaks #9 on their list of the "50 Greatest TV Dramas".[2] Also that year, Time included the show on their list of the "100 Best TV Shows of All-Time".[3]
