The game-adapted action comedy series “Twisted Metal” starring Anthony Mackie was picked up by streaming platform Peacock and has been booked for a full season.
Produced by Sony Television and PlayStation Production, “Twisted Metal” is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Anonymous, played by Anthony Mackie, is a milkman with no memory of the past, articulate and fast.
At one point he got a chance to live a better life—delivering a mysterious package into the wasteland of a post-apocalyptic world.
Along the way, he and his sidekick, a belligerent car thief, face all kinds of threats on the road: savage marauders and unhinged clowns driving ice cream trucks.
The show was inspired by “Deadpool” and “Zombieland” writing duo Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, with Michael Jonathan Smith (“Cobra Kai”) as writer and executive producer, and Anthony Mackie as executive producer.
