The half-hour horror-comedy show–which stars Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church and former Scream final girl Neve Campbell–follows John Doe (Mackie), “a motor-mouthed outsider who is offered a chance at a better life–but only if he can deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland,” according to the synopsis.
With the help of a car thief (Beatriz), he will face “savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road–including a deranged clown who drives an all-too-familiar ice cream truck.”
Twisted Metal is now headed into post-production and, while no release window has yet been announced, the best guess is a Peacock debut during the second half of 2023.
The Twisted Metal vehicular combat video game series–published by Sony Computer Entertainment–has been developed by several companies, starting with SingleTrac in 1995.
