A Pitch Perfect series is coming up for Peacock, and some big names are already attached.
Original cast member Adam Devine is set to join the project, reprising his role as Bumper Allen via Variety.
Reportedly, the series is set “several years after the events of the films,” according to the report, and Adam‘s character “moves to Germany to revive his music career when one of his songs becomes big in Berlin.”
Bumper Allen was originally the leader of the all-male a cappella group The Treblemakers, returning as a supporting character in the second film and the love interest of Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy.
Megan Amram is writing the series, and Elizabeth Banks is among the executive producers, who starred in the films and directed the series ‘Pitch Perfect 2’.
“Our upcoming Pitch Perfect series is another example of the unmatched synergy NBCUniversal is able to expand upon with our wide-ranging library of IP. When we saw the opportunity to create a series for Pitch Perfect with Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman and Paul Brooks plus more earworm classics for super fans to enjoy, we jumped at it. And to top it off, we are so fortunate that Adam Devine is headlining the series and bringing fans the quirky, laugh-out-loud sensibility they loved in the film franchise,” said NBCUniversal’s Susan Rovner.
