Campbell is joining previously announced leads Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn-99), and Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man: No Way Home). She’ll play the role of Raven, who was a contestant that was first introduced in Twisted Metal: Black in 2001.

The show is based on a concept from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who will executive produce. It will be written by Cobra Kai scribe Michael Jonathan Smith, who will also serve as an EP. Other executive producers include PlayStation Studios’ Hermen Hulst, Qizilbash and Carter Swan of PlayStation Productions, Inspire Entertainment’s Jason Spire, Electric Avenue’s Will Arnett and Marc Forman, and Peter Principato of Artists First. Bad Trip‘s Kitao Sakurai is also set to executive produce and direct a few episodes.

Sony is also allegedly creating another Twisted Metal game and it is likely being positioned to come out around the same time as the Peacock series. After reportedly changing developers, the game is said to be coming from Firesprite, a studio Sony recently acquired in September 2021. However, this game has yet to be formally revealed.

Twisted Metal is another one of Sony’s video game franchises making the jump to another medium. There’s Ghost of Tsushima movie in the works and an HBO show based on The Last of Us.
