It is almost unbelievable to me that in the year 2023 we are getting a Twisted Metal TV show. I have not heard anything about the show or anyone mention the game in almost a decade but Peacock has released the first clip from the show and you can watch it below.
TWISTED METAL, a half-hour live-action TV series based on the classic PlayStation game series, is a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and written by Michael Jonathan Smith, 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 badass axe-wielding 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.
The series debuts July 27, only on Peacock.
