Season One of Peacock TV Adaptation of ‘Twisted Metal’ Wraps Production

Production on Season one of Peacock’s upcoming TV adaptation of Twisted Metal is in the books. The series’ writer and executive producer Michael Jonathan Smith announced via Twitter earlier this week (along with a picture of an ice sculpture of the series’ logo) that production on the first season had completed filming.

Smith elaborated in subsequent tweets, saying that the cast and crew for production on Twisted Metal “was something special.” This was in spite of typical production issues such as “lightning delays, extreme heat, and cars that wouldn’t do as they’re told”.

The series now heads to post-production, which will no doubt involve adding flames to Sweet Tooth’s head. Jonathan likened the last day of shooting to the last day of summer camp, with “lots of laughs, a few tears, and ice cream being handed out the back of Sweet Tooth’s truck.”

Peacock has yet to reveal when exactly we’ll be seeing the first season of Twisted Metal, which will include the likes of Neve Campbell, Anthony MackieStephanie Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church, Samoa Joe (who will be playing Sweet Tooth) and Will Arnett (who is also on as executive producer, and will be voicing Sweet Tooth).

The original take for the live-action series is from the team behind Zombieland and the Deadpool movie, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

The premise for the series sees John Doe (played by Anthony Mackie), a smart-ass milkman with no memory of his past, joining the Twisted Metal tournament as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make his wish of finding community come true…if he can survive the savage vehicular combat.
