The half-hour live-action series is described to be "a high-octane action comedy" about "a motor-mouthed outsider" who gets "offered a chance at a better life" but he has to "deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland." The description adds, "With the help of a badass axe-wielding car thief, he will 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." The series is all set to air on Peacock on July 27, 2023.

Filmed in New Orleans from May to August 2022, the 10-episode series also stars Stephanie Beatriz as Quiet and Thomas Haden Church as Agent Stone. Though professional wrestler Samoa Joe plays Sweet Tooth aka the clown masked man, Will Arnett voices the eccentric character. Richard Cabral also features in the series as Loud. A sneak peek scene released by Peacock shows John Doe getting beat by Sweet Tooth in a fight until "Sisqó's Thong Song brings them together." Mackie's casting was first announced in September 2021.

"We're thrilled to have Anthony Mackie on board. His ability to blend comedy, action, and drama is perfect for the Twisted world we're creating," Asad Qizilbash, head of PlayStation Productions, told Deadline. Glenn Adilman, EVP Comedy Development at Sony TV, added, "We've been big fans of Anthony's phenomenal body of work over the years and knew he was the only actor who could play a character as complex, funny, and compelling as John Doe." Mackie's role is described as "a smart-ass milkman who talks as fast as he drives."
