Pete Davidson tries to live a normal life in Bupkis trailer

Who better to play a fictionalized version of Pete Davidson (The King of Staten Island) than Davidson himself? The Saturday Night Live alum stars in the new half-hour comedy from Peacock, Bupkis, which released its first trailer.

In Bupkis, Davidson is trying to navigate the perils of fame while striving to live a “normal life.” As his grandfather (Goodfellas’ Joe Pesci) tells Davidson in the footage, “You run around like a kid, and you’re not a kid anymore. You’re a man.” As his star persona rises, Davidson’s mother (The Sopranos’ Edie Falco) reminds her son that “nothing is as important as family.”

The official logline from 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.”

A Friend of the Family trailer shows a psychopath at work
Poster of the cast from Peacock's A Friend of the Family.

In the trailer for Peacock's A Friend of the Family, which is based on a true story, FBI Agent Peter Walsh (Austin Stowell) tells the Broberg family to question the intentions of their neighbor, Robert Berchtold (Jake Lacy). "No one thinks that their best friend is a monster," says Walsh. "But he has all the hallmarks of a psychopathic personality."

Colin Hanks and Anna Paquin star as Bob and Mary Ann Broberg, a kindhearted suburban family who became great friends with Robert and his wife, Gai (Lio Tipton). Over a few years, Robert manipulated the Brobergs to go against one another other, exploiting their vulnerabilities as a family while driving a wedge between the parents and one of their daughters, Jan (Mckenna Grace). During this time frame, Robert kidnapped Jan multiple times, and sexually assaulted her in the process.

Pinocchio comes to life in Disney+’s new live-action trailer
Disney's Pinocchio from the forthcoming live-action remake.

Pinocchio may not have been the first animated film produced by Walt Disney, but it has a major place in Disney lore. The 1940 animated classic still holds up well 82 years after its initial release, and its signature song, When You Wish Upon a Star, has become an anthem for the entire Disney company. For this year's Disney+ Day, the studio is releasing a big-budget, live-action remake of Pinocchio. And this CGI wooden puppet looks uncannily like his conventionally animated counterpart in the new trailer.
