If you need something to stream on June 2nd, head on over to Showtime for a full marathon of “Twin Peaks”. The network announced that it will run all 18 parts of the “Twin Peaks” limited series, all starting on Saturday, June 2 at 4:35 a.m. ET/PT and ending at 10 p.m. PT/ET. That’s a lot of “Twin Peaks” and sure 4:35am is pretty early, but the option is there if you need it.

Showtime is calling it the “Emmy For Your Consideration” marathon, and the whole thing is airing on Showtime 2. In addition, all parts are also available to subscribers on multiple television and streaming providers’ devices, websites and applications and their free On Demand channels.

Directed entirely by David Lynch, the 18-part limited event series picked up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered.

Golden Globe-winning and Emmy Award-nominated Kyle MacLachlan returned as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, Cooper Double and Dougie Jones. “Twin Peaks” is written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.

Later that month Showtime will debut the television premiere of the documentary “Love Means Zero,” which tells the story of celebrated yet controversial tennis coach Nick Bollettieri and explores the cost of his all-consuming drive for greatness. You can stream that documentary on June 23 at 9 p.m.

The film features interviews with his former students and tennis prodigies, including Jim Courier, Kathleen Horvath, Carling Bassett and Boris Becker. The documentary made its world premiere to critical acclaim at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

Now 86, Bollettieri is a living legend. At his academy in Florida, he raised a generation of champions: Courier, Monica Seles, Andre Agassi and many more. No other coach has matched his success, his dominance or his fame. His greatness, though, came at a price. Eight marriages, financial upheaval and a dramatic break with his surrogate son and cherished student, Andre Agassi. “Love Means Zero” tells the intimate and complex story of how Bollettieri became arguably the most famous tennis coach of all time.

A Kilo Films production, “Love Means Zero” is produced and directed by Jason Kohn (Manda Bala (Send a Bullet)). Amanda Branson Gill, Anne White, Jill Mazursky and David Styne also serve as producers.
