Peacock has unveiled the official trailer for the upcoming TV series “Twisted Metal,” which is based on the popular PlayStation video game franchise.
The show centers around John Doe, portrayed by Anthony Mackie, as he embarks on a cross-country journey through the divided landscape of America in search of a place to call home. Unexpectedly, his life takes an unexpected turn when he encounters a mysterious and intriguing woman named Quiet, played by Stephanie Beatriz. Their chance meeting forces them to join forces, leading to transformative changes in both of their lives.
According to the series’ official synopsis, “Twisted Metal” is a live-action half-hour show that offers a fresh interpretation of the franchise’s concept.

However, the catch is that he must successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Along the way, he teams up with a fierce car thief who wields an axe, and together they must face ruthless marauders driving destructive vehicles and other perils of the open road. Among the dangers they encounter is a deranged clown who operates an eerily familiar ice cream truck.
