Writer/director Mark Frost teamed with David Lynch to create one of the most popular cult television programs in history, the surreal "Twin Peaks" (ABC, 1990-91), while also penning several feature films, including "Fantastic Four" (2005) and a series of popular mystery novels and non-fiction sports history books. The New York native got his start in television in the late 1970s, earning an Emmy nomination for "Hill Street Blues" (NBC, 1981-87) before teaming with Lynch for two proposed feature film projects. Neither came to fruition, but the pair conceived a complex story and array of characters that would comprise "Twin Peaks." A huge critical success, the series' small but ardent fan club was unable to save it from cancellation, though Frost and Lynch would try to provide a summation with the 1992 feature "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me." During this period, Frost began writing books and generated a string of best-sellers that included the mystery-thriller The List of Seven (1993) and The Greatest Game Ever Played(2002), a non-fiction history book that became a feature film in 2005. He continued to mine success in features and publishing into the new millennium before thrilling "Twin Peaks" fans in 2014 by announcing a limited revival of the series for Showtime. Frost's large and varied body of work, which touched on a variety of genres, underscored his continuing status as one of the most prolific and acclaimed writers in multiple mediums.
