Wen Peacock’s adaptation of Twisted Metal premieres, Will Arnett (The LEGO Batman Movie) won’t just be the series’ executive producer but also voice the franchise’s flagship character Sweet Tooth.
Based on the PlayStation video game franchise, Twisted Metal is a half-hour action comedy following “a motor-mouthed Milkman 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 who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.”
Arnett’s Sweet Tooth will be “a hilarious and terrifying hulk of a man, who is as emotional as he is cunning. A lover of chaos, this majestic rage-filled killer dons an ever-smiling clown mask and uses ‘Lost Vegas’ as his own personal kill-ground, all while he drives his infamous doomsday ice cream truck.”
Twisted Metal stars Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man: No Way Home) and Neve Campbell (Scream).
Twisted Metal is an ‘original take’ by Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Conra Kai‘s Michael Jonathan Smith will serve as showrunner with Kitao Sakurai (Bad Trip) directing the season.
