Pete Davidson Comedy Ordered by Peacock


Peacock has given a straight-to-series order for Bupkis, a new comedy written and executive produced by Pete Davidson, who will also star.

The half-hour live-action comedy gives a fictionalized version of Davidson’s real life, combining grounded storytelling with absurd elements. It will be produced by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video and Universal Television.

Dave Sirus and Judah Miller co-write with Davidson and also serve as executive producers, alongside Michaels, Andrew Singer and Erin David.

“Pete Davidson is one of the most sought-after comedians today with his smart, one-of-a-kind humor and honest point of view,” said Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Bupkis will showcase Pete’s funny, surprising and unfiltered brand of comedy audiences have come to love as we continue to bolster our Peacock comedy slate. We can’t wait to dive in with Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video and our partners at Universal Television.”
