‘Twin Peaks’ Revival: New Teaser Features Angelo Badalamenti

Angelo Badalamenti is back in a new teaser for the upcoming “Twin Peaks” revival.

The video shows Badalamenti at the piano, playing the music that he composed for the original series in the early ’90s that has come to be one of the most recognized themes in television history.

The upcoming revival will pick up 25 years after the original “Twin Peaks,” which followed the FBI investigation conducted by special agent Dale Cooper into the murder of Laura Palmer in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington.

Showtime bosses David Nevins and Gary Levine teased back in August that they were impressed with what they had seen so far of David Lynch’s work.

“We were both instantly transported,” Levine said. “The tone, the feel  — it is so singular. We can’t wait to show it to the world.”

The updated series will be feature music from Badalamenti, whose original music for the series won him a Grammy in 1990. Badalamenti also won a Lifetime Achievement award at the World Soundtrack Awards and received the Henry Mancini award from ASCAP.

The new “Twin Peaks” is written and produced by series creators and executive producers Lynch and Mark Frost and is directed entirely by Lynch. Showtime has already released the cast list, which includes a total of 217 actors including many of the original members, as well as fresh names like Laura Dern and Naomi Watts.

The “Twin Peaks” revival will premiere on Showtime in 2017.
