Twisted Metal, the series that began on PC and the first PlayStation in 1995, is getting its own TV series on the Peacock streaming service. According to Bloody Disgusting, the series comes from Zombieland and Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and is being described as a "comedic, half hour live action adaptation."
The following is a description of the show.
"Anthony Mackie stars as John Doe, a smart-ass milkman who talks as fast as he drives. With no memory of his past, John gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make his wish of finding community come true, but only if he can survive an onslaught of savage vehicular combat."
"Twisted Metal is a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a trigger-happy car thief, he'll 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 will be executive produced by Mackie and written by Michael Jonathan Smith of Cobra Kai fame.
