Before Twin Peaks was sold to ABC as a series, Lynch and Frost raised money to finance the production of the pilot episode by signing a contract with Warner Home Video. The contract gave Warner Home Video the rights to sell the pilot episode as a movie on video in Europe (not knowing whether the pilot would result in a series, Warner wanted to ensure they could make their money back.) In order to sell it as a movie, the contract stipulated that the pilot must stand on its own and have a “closed ending” where the murder of Laura Palmer was resolved.
Length 113 minutes
