True crime series to cover Twin Peaks inspiration
The case that inspired the classic series will get its own documentary.
A new true crime series is set to cover the murder that inspired Twin Peaks.
The series, which is based on the book Blonde, Beautiful and Dead: The Murder Mystery that Inspired Twin Peaks, the series is currently being optioned by Part2 Pictures to be made into a documentary.
President of the company, David Shadrack Smith, said that he was looking to create a multimedia event around the book.
“This is one of those stories that you can just see and feel the second you hear about it. It has all the texture and twists of Twin Peaks but has the beauty of being true crime with a current-day investigation unfolding alongside the events of the past. We’re excited to take a multi-platform approach to it with Metabook and create something that lives across diverse media.”
The authors of the book, David Bushman and Mark Givens, said that the series would bring the story to new audiences.
“We are beyond excited by this new partnership with Part2 Pictures that will allow us to bring the intriguing tale of Hazel Drew’s brief life and tragic death to a whole new audience."
One of the co-creators of Twin Peaks, Mark Frost, has said that his mother would tell him stories about the unsolved case of a girl who was found in a local pond who led a colourful life.
This would go on to inspire the writer to create the mystery series with acclaimed director David Lynch.
Whilst there’s no news yet as to when or where the series will air, it sounds like something that Netflix would pick up without question.
