The show was produced and written by executive producer Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai) It has actor Mackie in the role of John Doe, an amnesiac who “talks as fast as he drives” according to a statement released by Peacock.

Doe is required to travel across a post-apocalyptic wilderness in order to transport items to an outpost. She will be assisted by car burglar Quiet (Beatriz) and is being chased by patrolman agent Stone (Church).

Peacock announced in February it had commissioned in February the PlayStation Productions show and granted it a series contract.

Twisted Metal is the second TV series from PlayStation Productions, a studio formed by Sony Interactive Entertainment to adapt its original game properties for film and TV.
