Twisted Metal is a live-action adaptation of the classic vehicular combat video game series. Developed by PlayStation Studios and airing exclusively on Peacock, this dark comedy action series follows a group of eccentric characters who are offered a chance at a better life, but only if they can survive an insane competition involving weaponized vehicles.

The show centers around John Doe, an amnesiac with no memory of his past who is looking for a fresh start. When the mysterious Calypso offers him the chance to have any wish granted if he can win the Twisted Metal tournament, John enters the fray in hopes of learning about his forgotten identity. Joining him in the madness is a crew of fellow misfits, each with their own reasons for putting their lives on the line behind the wheel.

There's Quiet, a ferocious but mute driver whose ride is a souped-up sports car equipped with deadly buzzsaws. Nox is a stoic armored trucker who seems to know more about John's past than he lets on. Then there's Skat and Glitch, psycho clowns who drive an ice cream truck that hides some sinister surprises under the hood. The competition is hosted by Calypso, an eccentric billionaire who runs Twisted Metal more for his own amusement than anything else. He provides color commentary as his unhinged contestants unleash automotive anarchy.

The arenas they battle in are just as wild and dangerous as the drivers themselves. Whether it's a dilapidated shopping mall filled with deadly traps or a crumbling metropolitan cityscape rigged to explode, the environments are designed to amp up the vehicular destruction to the extreme. And no car is left unmodified - from souped-up sedans converted into makeshift tanks to big rigs with massive arsenals hidden in their trailers, each vehicle brings its own brand of unique chaos.

In between the explosive demolition action are snippets of John Doe's backstory through flashbacks and encounters with shadowy figures from his forgotten past. Every victory brings him closer to unraveling the mysteries about his true identity. But with Calypso seemingly hiding sinister motives and the competition growing more deadly, surviving long enough to learn the truth will be a challenge.

Twisted Metal combines high-octane vehicular mayhem with an offbeat sensibility to deliver an action series like no other. Led by an ensemble cast of eccentric characters and filled with absurd humor and over-the-top violence, this adaptation brings the beloved video game franchise to life while putting its own unique twist on the car combat genre. Strap in for a wild ride as machine meets madness in this demolition derby where there can only be one victor.

Twisted Metal is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on July 27, 2023.
