You played yourself, Pete Davidson.
Davidson is set to star as a “heightened, fictionalized” version of himself in Peacock’s new half-hour show titled “Bupkis”, as reported by TV Line. The series takes inspiration from “Curb Your Enthusiasm” in its approach.
“Pete Davidson is one of the most sought-after comedians today with his smart, one-of-a-kind humour and honest point of view,” Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said in a statement published by the outlet.
“’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.”
There is no confirmation on how Davidson’s new role in “Bupkis” will affect his status as a player on Global’s “Saturday Night Live”.
