Production has wrapped in New Orleans on Michael Jonathan Smith's (Cobra Kai) TV adaptation of video game Twisted Metal.

The show follows a motor-mouthed outsider who is offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Smith, who serves as showrunner, took to Twitter to announce that filming has wrapped on the upcoming series, alongside a photo of an ice sculpture emblazoned with the show's title to celebrate the milestone. 
Beginning a series of tweets, the EP said: “That’s a wrap on season one!“ before adding: “The cast and crew of Twisted Metal was something special. Even with lightning delays, extreme heat, and cars that wouldn’t do as they’re told, everyone worked as hard as they could to make sure Twisted Metal kicked as much as possible.

“The last day of shooting felt like the last day of camp, with lots of laughs, a few tears, and ice cream being handed out the back of Sweet Tooth’s truck. We all cannot wait for you to see this insane thing we spent our summer shooting. Now, to post!“, he concluded.

The project comes from Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions. Will Arnett exec produced via his production company, Electric Avenue. It is written by Deadpool’s Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick; Bill Benz, Kitao Sakurai and Jude Weng serve as co-directors.

Twisted Metal has comprised five video games across PS One, PS2 and PS3. It first released in 1995.

Twisted Metal season 1 will be available on NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock; a release date is to be confirmed.
