Pete Davidson Will Star As Himself In ‘Unapologetically Unfiltered’ New Scripted Comedy

Pete Davidson is everywhere right now. And in case anyone was hoping for one more place to see the unorthodox, often controversial “Saturday Night Live” comedian, now they’re going to have one with the debut of the scripted comedy, tentatively titled “Bupkis.”

According to Deadline, “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels announced that the 28-year-old star is “poised to play the lead in the project” which is “inspired by his life” but is not technically a reality show. 

The new series will be “a raw, unflinching, fictionalized version of Pete Davidson’s real life,” according to the publication. “It will include a mixture of grounded storytelling with absurd elements depicting an unfiltered view through Pete’s eyes.”

Fans can expect the show to harness the comedian’s signature “SNL” style by reflecting “Davidson’s real-life persona with an unapologetically unfiltered, R-rated storytelling.” Besides Davidson, the ensemble cast is said to include “A-list talent” as well.

There was no word given on the inclusion of Kim Kardashian, who is currently dating the “SNL” star. However, in a very recent interview with Variety, Kardashian said there’s a chance Davidson will appear on her new Hulu reality show, “The Kardashians.”

 “I have not filmed with him [Davidson],” the 41-year-old reality star said when asked. 

“And I’m not opposed to it,” she continued. “It’s just not what he does. But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn’t tell the cameras to get away. I think I might film something really exciting coming, but it wouldn’t be for this season.”

Kardashian went on to tease that the beginning of the couple’s relationship will definitely be addressed.

“How we met and who reached out to who and how it happened and all the details that everyone wants to know,” Kardashian explained. “I’m definitely open to talking,” the star said. “And I definitely explain it.” 

Davidson hasn’t exactly been sitting around doing nothing even if he doesn’t appear in “The Kardashians.” In addition to the scripted comedy and performing on “SNL” since 2014, the comedian has starred in “The King of Staten Island,” “Big Time Adolescence” and “The Suicide Squad.” 

Some of his upcoming projects include Machine Gun Kelly’s “Good Mourning With a U” and the rom-com “Meet Cute” with “Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco, plus the animated comedy “Marmaduke.”

One of the biggest reasons Davidson has been making headlines lately has nothing to do with his own work. Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West is waging a very public battle against the comedian that includes lots of dissing on social media and even in song lyrics.

Ye caused a real stir when the accompanying music video to his new “Donda 2” song, “Eazy,” depicted a claymation version of Davidson being kidnapped and buried alive. The accompanying lyrics left no question as to what the rapper meant by the video.

One line of the song said, “God saved me from that crash just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**.”
