What to Expect
The show is set to be a fictionalized version of Pete’s real life. “The series will combine grounded storytelling with absurd elements from the unfiltered and completely original worldview for which Pete is well known,” according to Peacock’s official press release. In May 2022, it was announced that Edie Falco would be playing his mom in the show.
What Pete Said
The notoriously private comedian has yet to speak publicly about what fans can expect from his series. However, Deadline reported in April 2022 that the show is set to compare to HBO’s long-running comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Will Kim Appear
Following the show’s official announcement, some fans took to social media and started speculating if Pete’s girlfriend, Kim, will make a cameo in Bupkis. Especially, since the show is set to be about Pete’s life. However, neither of them revealed any casting news just yet.
The King of Staten Island star and Skims founder have been romantically linked since October 2021. Since going public, the duo have been vocal about sharing details of their personal life together.
“This is what I’m going to say because I’m not going to answer Kim K shout-out questions all day, OK, just because I want to be respectful of privacy,” Pete, for one, told fans attending New York’s University of Rochester’s Winterfest in February 2022. “But it’s going great, and we are very happy.”
Pete has yet to make an appearance on The Kardashians, but will Kim be on Bupkis? Only time will tell.
How to Watch
Fans will be able to stream the half-hour episodes via Peacock. No projected release date has been announced just yet.
