The story follows a motor-mouthed outsider named 'John Doe,' who takes on the ultimate life-changing opportunity if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. John Doe must navigate a treacherous terrain while ensuring the safe delivery of 'the package.'

Along the way, he forms an unlikely partnership with a fierce car thief who wields an axe with deadly precision. But he will also have to deal with savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers on the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.

"The year was 2001. Weezer had welcomed fans to an Island in the Sun. Shrek was an all-star at the box office. Pizza Hut had delivered a salami pizza to the International Space Station. And I was a sixteen-year-old nerd who had just purchased Twisted Metal: Black.

The second I inserted that disc into my PlayStation 2, I was transported to a chaotic demolition derby that left me cackling with glee at the chaos of it all. That inescapable feeling of joy is what I wanted to bring to life in our show," said Executive Producer and Showrunner Michael Johnathan Smith.

"Yes, Twisted Metal has the cars, it has the weapons, and it has the battles. But what it also has are people. I know you will fall in love with these characters and what drives them, no pun intended (okay, maybe a little intended)."
