"Bupkis", which Pete writes, produces and stars on, is described as a fictionalized version of his life growing up on Staten Island. The comedy series will additionally star Joe Pesci as his grandfather and Edie Falco as his mother.

A slew of celebrities are reportedly also set to make guest appearances on the forthcoming project including Charlie Day, Al Gore, Bobby Cannavale, John Mulaney, La La Anthony, Kenan Thompson and Machine Gun Kelly. Pete's new girlfriend Chase Sui Wonders, with whom he starred in "bodies, bodies, bodies", will also appear on "Bupkis".

Prior to Pete, Ana de Armas will stop by the sketch comedy as a host. The Cuban-Spanish actress, whose credits include "Blonde", "Deep Water", "Knives Out" and "Blade Runner 2049", will host the show in the April 15 episode.
