Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson is set to play a fictional version of himself in a new comedy series produced by Lorne Michaels

According to Deadline, the project titled Bupkis, “is being described as a raw, unflinching, fictionalised version’ of Pete’s real life. It will include a mixture of grounded storytelling with absurd elements depicting an unfiltered view through Pete’s eyes.”

Davidson is reportedly also co-writing the show with his long-time friend and collaborator Dave Sirus, as well as Judah Miller.

The show, which has been compared to Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, doesn’t currently have a home and is being pitched to streamers, with Prime Video and Peacock among those believed to be interested.
