Peacock today released a first look photo on set of the upcoming comedy series Bupkis starring Pete Davidson and Joe Pesci as production begins. The series is written, starring and executive produced by Davidson himself and also stars Emmy Award-winner Edie Falco. Falco will play Davidson’s mom and Academy Award-winner Joe Pesci will play Davidson’s grandfather.
Peacock also shared an official synopsis of the series in addition to the production:
BUPKIS, a half-hour live action comedy, is 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.
Lorne Michaels will executive produce for Broadway Video, Judah Miller (Showrunner) and Dave Sirus are writing and executive producing alongside executive producers Andrew Singer and Erin David. Jason Orley will direct and co-executive produce. Series comes from Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Broadway Video.
