In the comedy film Pitch Perfect from 2012, audiences were introduced to the world of collegiate a capella, at least virtually. Due to the characters’ likability and singing prowess, the movie’s success led to two sequels.
With the release of Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin, a Peacock spinoff series, the humorous a capella franchise is now striking a new note.
The six-episode series follows Bumper (Adam Devine), who becomes famous after singing “99 Red Balloons” on “German TikTok,” as the title of the show suggests.

Bumper in Berlin, a slapstick comedy starring Adam Devine, Sarah Hyland, and Jameela Jamil, follows Bumper as he travels to Berlin in an effort to revive his singing career.
The Peacock series offers fans many laugh-out-loud moments, a cliffhanger, and (in true Pitch Perfect fashion) a riff-off.
