Now, via the The Hollywood Reporter, a new deep dive into the real life , unsolved crime that inspired the classic TV series is getting the Metabook treatment from David Bushman, the author of the Twin Peaks FAQ, and Mark Givens, host of popular Twin Peaks podcast Deer Meadow Radio.

"Like the character of Laura Palmer, the young woman at the center of this mystery led a sort of double life and ultimately met a tragic fate," said co-author Bushman in a statement announcing the project. "Her story is a provocative tale in its own right."

Like other Metabooks, including Wally Lamb’s well received I’ll Take You There, it features a musical score — by Jacob Yoffee (hear a preview here) — and cinematic elements. 

"We're always on the lookout for stories that have the ability to move beyond the page," said Metabook creator Benjamin Alfonsi. "Blonde, Beautiful and Dead is a murder mystery full of drama and atmosphere, and we want to capture that in the soundtrack and especially the film that will accompany it."

Under Metabook Films' banner, Alfonsi executive produced with Elizabeth Banks the short Yours Sincerely, Lois Weber, which won best documentary at the 2017 LA Shorts International Film Festival.
