Twin Peaks
David Lynch's acclaimed early 1990s surrealist mystery thriller series is coming to Blu-ray later this year. The newly remastered "Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery" box-set contains every episode of the series, both the U.S. and international versions of the series pilot, the follow-up film "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" and approximately ninety minutes of deleted and extended scenes from that film. There's also hours of never-before-released material and newly shot extras.

World's End
Showtime and "Bored to Death" creator Jonathan Ames are teaming to adapt Icelandic dramedy "World's End". Ames will pen the script and executive produce.

The story centers on a high school English teacher, struggling with life, love and disaffected students, who winds up committed to a mental institution, where, ironically, he finally feels normal and becomes the leader of an inmate revolt. [Source: The Live Feed]
