Buckle Up for a Wild Ride with Sony’s Twisted Metal

Based on the PlayStation game series and starring Anthony Mackie and Stephanie Beatriz, action-comedy drama Twisted Metal heads to Hulu Japan. By K Dass.

Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has an exciting series to premiere on February 22. They’ve licensed the high-octane action series Twisted Metal to Hulu Japan. This live-action TV series is based on the classic PlayStation game franchise and promises a thrilling ride.

Across APAC, this distribution agreement complements previously closed deals for Twisted Metal with Stan (Australia), TVNZ+ (New Zealand), AXN (Korea), Coupang Play (Korea) and Sony LIV (India). Globally, the series has been sold to Peacock (USA), Paramount+ (Canada, UK), Max (CEE, Poland, LATAM), Prime Video (South Africa, Benelux, Nordics), NOVA (Greece), and BeIN & TOD (MENA).

“We are thrilled to partner with Hulu Japan to bring this unique adaptation based on the iconic PlayStation game to audiences in Japan,” said Adam Herr, Senior Vice President, Distribution, APAC. Twisted Metal has something for everyone…it combines high intensity action with laugh-out-loud moments that are entertaining and bingeworthy. This series has quickly become a fan-favourite across the world and we can’t wait for viewers in Japan to join in on the fun.”

The show follows a motor-mouthed outsider who’s offered a chance at a better life. The catch? He must successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Along the way, he’ll encounter savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction, including a deranged clown with an all-too-familiar ice cream truck.

Cast includes Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz, and Thomas Haden Church. Creators: Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with writing by Michael Jonathan Smith.
