Kim Kardashian and ‘SNL’ star Pete Davidson’s romance has been one of the best things worth discussing in the past several months. Their relationship started last year after they were seen enjoying a rollercoaster ride and it has truly been a wonderful experience for them since then. It seems Pete Davidson will be getting a new comedy series based on his life. The show, titled Bupkis, will be written and starred by Davidson.
Pete Davidson, the Saturday Night Live cast member and aspiring space tourist, will soon star in a Peacock series based on his own life. The half-hour comedy series, Bupkis, is described as a heightened, fictionalized version of Pete Davidson’s real life that will combine grounded storytelling with absurd elements from Pete’s unfiltered and completely original worldview.
Dave Sirus and Judah Miller, who previously collaborated with Davidson on The King of Staten Island, will serve as writers on the show alongside the actor. There isn’t much else known about Bupkis, such as when it will premiere or how many episodes there will be.
However, it appears to be a significant win for the streaming service, who claims that “the series was acquired in a highly competitive situation.” Peacock has largely relied on back-catalog content and sports to attract subscribers, despite a few notable original series.
That could change, as the company announced earlier this year that it intends to double its spending on original content, with a $3 billion budget for 2022. Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian continue to get closer by the day from what it seems. We will have to wait and see whether marriage is also in the cards somewhere along the line.
