Production Update

PlayStation Productions is Sony’s film and TV production studio for their video game properties that are making the live-action transition. The studio is working with major streaming services like HBO, Amazon Prime Video, and NBC’s Peacock. Sony has put producers Carter Swan and Asad Qizilbash at the helm of all of their productions to date, including the studio’s first offering—2022’s Uncharted, starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.

PlayStation Productions’ “Twisted Metal” Series

“Twisted Metal” will be coming to NBC’s streaming service Peacock. Production will begin on 23 May of 2022 and is set to wrap on September 2nd. That means the series will likely air sometime in 2023. Twisted Metal is is based on the vehicular combat video games by the same name. The plot centers around a motor-mouthed outsider John Doe (Mackie) who is offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

With the help of a trigger-happy car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown named who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck, whom fans of the game will know
as Sweet Tooth.
