The arrival of The Last of Us onto the HBO platform has illuminated Sony to the vast potential for success across both their television and video game divisions, which could come to define PlayStation Productions if executed with due diligence. Nonetheless, The Last of Us is not the solitary intellectual property within the purview of the Japanese conglomerate that could potentially grace the small screen in the near future.

Mention must be made of Twisted Metal. Despite the fact that its filming concluded in the latter half of the previous year, information regarding its projected release has been scarce, with the only affirmation made being that it would appear on Peacock, the United States-based film and television streaming service provided by NBCUniversal. However, a recent declaration by a PlayStation Productions executive has hinted that the series may well become available for viewing prior to the end of 2023.

Asad Qizilbash, one of the esteemed heads of PlayStation Productions, recently conveyed his exultation regarding the forthcoming projects slated for this year, which include The Last of Us and the highly anticipated film adaptation of Gran Turismo, set to be released in theaters on August 11th. In his statement, Qizilbash playfully referenced the iconic character of Sweet Tooth from the popular video game series Twisted Metal, accompanied by a clown face emoji and a fiery icon.

Subsequently, Qizilbash assuaged any confusion by elucidating that the release date for the Twisted Metal series has not yet been firmly established. However, he did assure that those responsible for bringing the project to fruition will be exerting tireless efforts towards its development throughout the year.

What is Twisted Metal?

Twisted Metal, an action comedy television series with elements of drama, has a runtime of thirty minutes per episode. John Doe, portrayed by Anthony Mackie, is a wittily eloquent milkman who is plagued by a lack of recollection regarding his prior existence. He is granted an opportunity to better his life, with a pre-condition to safely convey a cryptic parcel across a devastated post-apocalyptic landscape. As he endeavors to fulfill this task, he must confront a multitude of dangers, including the deranged clown who pilots a sinister ice-cream truck.
