NBC's Jennifer Salke has admitted that the network would be interested in a Twin Peaks revival.

Rumors of the cult drama's return began to surface last week, but series co-creator Mark Frost later denied the reports on Twitter.

"Dear Internet: You are very good at spreading rumors," he wrote. "Truth is more valuable and much harder to come by."

Salke - NBC's President of Entertainment - confirmed at this year's TCA press tour that the initial reports were false, but expressed some interest in the project, according to IGN.

"I called everybody when I got the email," she explained. "None of us had gotten a call about that, not from an agent, not from the writer, not the head of drama... so we're wondering the same thing you are."

However, she added: "When it came up we all looked at each other and said, 'That's a good idea'. We were all kind of like, 'Hmm, we like Twin Peaks!' So, I'll send some emails today, and see what I can get to come in."

Twin Peaks - co-created by Frost and David Lynch - originally ran on ABC for two seasons between April 1990 and June 1991. A spinoff movie - Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me - followed in 1992.
