Description

Twin Peaks is an American supernatural mystery drama television series created by David Lynch and Mark Frost which follows the investigation headed by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper of the brutal murder of a popular teenager and homecoming queen, Laura Palmer.

The series originally aired in South Africa on the old SABC service in the 1990s. Broadcast dates for the original run of the show are not available. It later aired on TopTV's Fox Retro channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Synopsis

The story begins with the murder of Laura Palmer, a teenaged girl who lived in the quiet town of Twin Peaks, near the US - Canadian borders.

Everyone seems surprised and devastated by the girl's murder, and the town's sheriff welcomes the help of FBI agent Dale Cooper, who comes to investigate the case.

As Cooper begins his search for Laura's killer, the town's secrets are gradually exposed. This is definitely not an average quiet town, it seems as everyone has something big to hide.

At nights, Agent Cooper sees strange visions of Laura and other mysterious people, visions that tell him that something big is happening here, something far more evil than a single murder case...

This web of mystery ultimately leads Agent Cooper deep into the heart of the surrounding woodland and ultimately his very own soul.
