Everyone’s favorite milkman finally has his home, as Variety reports that the Twisted Metal TV series will air on Peacock. While a release date has yet to be confirmed, at least we know that Anthony Mackie will be playing the role of John Doe.

Like the video game that inspired him, the John Doe character talks fast and drives faster, as he tries to remember his past while engaging in vicious vehicular combat. In order to survive, he will have to face deranged enemies, including a certain clown who drives an ice cream truck.

For those unfamiliar with the franchise, Twisted Metal is a demolition derby video game that was released in 1995 for the PlayStation. With its unique focus on ballistic projectiles, machine guns, mines, and other crazy weapon types, the series has stood out as one of the most unique products in gaming.

Although there hasn’t been an episode since 2015’s Twisted Metal: Black, the series has been a worldwide phenomenon for over 25 years, prompting Sony to go ahead with the live-action adaptation.

Speaking about the adaptation, Sony Pictures Television Studios co-presidents Jeff Frost and Jason Clodfelter had this to say:

“We are thrilled that our first series with our good friends at Peacock is with our amazing partners at Electric Avenue, Universal Television and our colleagues at PlayStation Productions. Michael Jonathan Smith and Rhett and Paul have artfully brought this heartwarming action-comedy to life. And we’re so lucky to have Anthony at the center of the series, and we look forward to seeing this incredible team wow audiences with this twisted and inventive concept.
