'Pitch Perfect' Spinoff Starring Adam Devine Ordered to Series at Peacock

Peacock has today given a series order to a spinoff series of the Pitch Perfect film franchise, with Adam Devine set to reprise his role from the first two films as Bumper Allen.

Several years after his appearance in the films, Bumper Allen moves to Germany to revive his music career when one of his songs becomes big in Berlin.

Megan Amram (The Good Place) created the series. She will executive produce with Devine, Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman, Paul Brooks and Scott Neimeyer. Universal Television, Brownstone Productions and Gold Circle Films will produce.

"Our upcoming Pitch Perfect series is another example of the unmatched synergy NBCUniversal is able to expand upon with our wide-ranging library of IP," said Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal and Streaming. "When we saw the opportunity to create a series for Pitch Perfect with Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman and Paul Brooks plus more earworm classics for super fans to enjoy, we jumped at it. And to top it off, we are so fortunate that Adam Devine is headlining the series and bringing fans the quirky, laugh-out-loud sensibility they loved in the film franchise."
