The game-based action comedy series “Twisted Metal” starring Anthony Mackie is set to direct, with Kitao Sakurai (“Bad Trip” “Aardvark”) to direct and executive produce several episodes.
Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Anonymous played by Mackie is a milkman with no memory of the past. He is 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 deranged clowns driving ice cream trucks.
Produced by Sony Television and PlayStation Production, the show was picked up by streaming platform Peacock and pre-ordered for an entire season.
Inspired by “Deadpool” “Zombieland” writing duo Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, Michael Jonathan Smith is the writer and executive producer, and Mackie is also the executive producer.
