To celebrate the return of David Lynch’s ground-breaking TV phenomenon Twin Peaks – premiering in Australia the same day as the US exclusively on Stan – Stan is partnering with Gelato Messina to transform, for the first time in the gelato giant’s history, two of their flagship stores to bring the “damn fine” world of Twin Peaks to Sydney and Melbourne.
For one day only in each city, the Messina Newtown (NSW) and Richmond (Vic) stores will become the place “where pies go when they die”, the iconic Double R Diner from the original Twin Peaks series. As part of the celebration, Gelato Messina will create a limited custom-made gelato cherry pie (50 slices per venue) and three Twin Peaks-inspired gelato flavours.
The Double R Diner will open its doors on Monday May 22 at Gelato Messina, Newtown in Sydney and Thursday May 25 at Gelato Messina Richmond in Melbourne.
Twin Peaks will debut only on Stan with a two-part premiere on Monday May 22, at 2pm, followed immediately by parts 3 and 4.
Directed entirely by David Lynch, the new Showtime 18-part limited event series picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. Twin Peaks is written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.
