Trailer for Peacock's Bupkis; Guest Stars Galore for The Muppets Mayhem on Disney+

Bupkis

Peacock has released the official trailer for upcoming original comedy series, Bupkis. The series is written, executive produced by and stars Pete Davidson and executive produced by Lorne Michaels. All eight episodes will premiere Thursday, May 4 on Peacock. Bupkis is a new comedy following Pete Davidson as he attempts to work through unique family dynamics and the complexities of fame to form meaningful relationships. The raw, semi-autobiographical series stars Davidson, Edie Falco, and Joe Pesci alongside a star studded supporting cast in a show that straddles reality and absurdity to best represent what it is to be Pete Davidson. Welcome to BUPKIS. Everything is Bupkis. #Bupkis is Everything. Premiering May 4 on @Peacock.

Pete Davidson (SNL, The King of Staten Island) wrote, executive produced and stars in the show. The series also stars Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie, The Sopranos) as Davidson's mom and Joe Pesci (Goodfellas, The Irishman) as Davidson's grandfather.
