Filming for the television series Twisted Metal began on May 23 in New Orleans and was supposed to wrap on September 2, but it ended earlier than expected.
Twisted Metal bills itself as a post-apocalyptic action-comedy starring Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) and Will Arnett (BoJack Horseman) for Peacock (NBCUniversal) with participation from PlayStation Productions and Sony Pictures Television/Sony Pictures Entertainment. It tells the story of a talkative misfit who is offered the chance for a better life if he can deliver a mysterious package across a desert. Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man: No Way Home) and Neve Campbell (The Lincoln Lawyer) also appear in the cast of the series adaptation of a PlayStation license which should return via a new opus on PS5 within the next few years.

Michael Jonathan Smith, showrunner, writer and executive producer of the television series Twisted Metal, says:
There you go, it’s in the box for season 1 of Twisted Metal. The cast and crew were exceptional. Despite lightning delays, extreme heat, and cars not doing what they were told, everyone worked as hard as possible to make Twisted Metal as spectacular as possible. The last day of filming felt like the last day of camp, with lots of laughs, a few tears, and ice cream being handed out in the back of Sweet Tooth’s truck. We can’t wait for you to see this insane thing we spent our summer shooting. Now, on to the assembly!
Anthony Mackie and Michael Jonathan Smith executive produce Twisted Metal alongside Kitao Sakurai – who has directed several episodes -, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, Will Arnett and Marc Forman via production company Electric Avenue, Jason Spire of Inspire Entertainment, Peter Principato of Artists First, Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan of PlayStation Productions, and Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios (Sony Interactive Entertainment).
