In the half-hour action comedy show, a motor-mouthed outsider (Mackie) is offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a trigger-happy car thief (Beatriz), he’ll 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.
Campbell will appear in the recurring guest star role as Raven, most likely a version of the “Twisted Metal” character of the same name introduced in “Twisted Metal: Black.”
Campbell currently stars in the Netflix series “The Lincoln Lawyer.” She also recently reprised the role of Sidney Prescott for “Scream,” the latest installment of the “Scream” horror film franchise. Her other TV roles include “House of Cards” and “Party of Five,” while her other film roles besides the “Scream” franchise include “Wild Things,” “Clouds,” and “Skyscraper.”
She is repped by Gersh, Anonymous Content, Viewpoint and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole.
The show is based on an original take by “Deadpool” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Michael Jonathan Smith will serve as writer, showrunner, and executive producer. Both Reese and Wernick also executive produce. Mackie will executive produce in addition to starring. Kitao Sakurai will direct multiple episodes and also executive produce. Will Arnett and Marc Forman will executive produce via Electric Avenue, which secured the rights to the material and helped put the project together. Jason Spire of Inspire Entertainment, Peter Principato of Artists First, Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan from PlayStation Productions, and PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst will also executive produce. Sony Pictures Television, Playstation Productions, and Universal Television will produce.
