Shockwave announced it has finalized a deal with director, writer and producer David Lynch to develop a series of animated shorts exclusively for the Netcaster. Like pacts with Stan Lee and the SOUTH PARK creators, Lynch will hold complete artistic control and ownership of the characters and properties he creates. "The Internet is our future and shockwave.com is a very important part of it," said David Lynch. "David Lynch is amazing. The Internet is a perfect new medium for him," said Rob Burgess, chairman of shockwave.com. "We're thrilled to have him developing programs for the audience of shockwave.com." Lynch has garnered a cult-like following from his off-beat, Oscar-nominated films like THE ELEPHANT MAN and BLUE VELVET and Golden Globe winning and Emmy award-nominated TV series TWIN PEAKS.
