PETE Davidson is set to star in a new comedy show inspired by his own life, Deadline has revealed.
Fans also learned if the Saturday Night Live favorite will be featured in the upcoming Hulu series, The Kardashians.
In a new comedy series, produced by Lorne Michaels, Pete will play a fictionalized version of himself.
He’ll take the lead role in the show, which currently has the working title, Bupkis.
Bupkis will be a raw, graphic and unswerving fictional version of Pete’s life, similar to Larry David’s HBO hit Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Talks are already underway with A-listers to ensemble the cast around Pete, and the show is being pitched to streaming giants Peacock and Prime Video.
