About the Project


"[an] out-and-out wacko dumb comedy"

"Mark [Frost] and I were laughing like crazy when we wrote it. I thought of this idea on an airplane. Steve Martin and I had met and were interested in this particular project way back when...He loved it, and he still loves it. The only problem is, every time I get ready to commit to it, I think the problem for me is that there's not enough meat to it. I feel like a lot of people could do it."

In a recent interview Lynch added:
"A project sometimes has a time and if you don't move during its time it may be gone, but there's another saying 'never say never', so I don't now what will happen to either one of those. I still love them [Ronnie Rocket and One Saliva Bubble] but I don't know that they'll get made."
