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.”

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.
