Twisted Metal will probably be tearing up the asphalt very quickly. This will debut on Peacock and adapt the hit Sony PlayStation car combat franchise into what’s described as “a comedic half-hour” episodic present. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie will star as John Doe, “a smart-ass milkman who talks as fast as he drives” who fights to outlive inside this post-apocalyptic world of chainsaws, flamethrowers, and homicidal clowns.
