Peacock Gives Series Order to Comedy 'Bupkis' Created by and Starring Pete Davidson

Peacock has today given a series order to the original comedy series Bupkis created by and starring Pete Davidson (Saturday Night Live, The King of Staten Island).

The live-action comedy depicts a heightened, fictionalized version of Pete Davidson's real life. The series will combine grounded storytelling with absurd elements from the unfiltered and completely original worldview for which Pete is well known.

Davidson co-created the comedy with Dave Sirus and Judah Miller. All three will executive produce with Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Erin David. Universal Television and Broadway Video will produce.

"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, 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."
