As BUPKIS’ first season came to a close, Pete (Pete Davidson) found himself in a rough place—and wound up in rehab.

In “Show Me the Way,” Pete grappled with possible recovery…and the show took a big tonal swing, by having the episode be primarily shot in black and white.

“We wanted to go big with the finale,” showrunner Judah Miller shares in the video below. (Note: This interview was conducted before the WGA strike.) “That was something we were looking to do. But I think it was important to us to continually have the show shift in ways you’re not expecting. And I don’t think anyone will expect the show to spend so much time with characters you haven’t met before. A lot of Pete’s arc in this show is about not using other people to distract himself from some of the things he’s trying to escape. So I think it was important to get Pete isolated.”

“In terms of where he goes in rehab, it made sense to us to portray it in black and white, because it helped portray his state of mind, and really make it clear he’s almost in a different dimension than the show,” he continues. “It gave us a lot of interesting thrusts toward our end when he’s returning to his life and the things he cares about the most.”

With an episode as ambitious as this under their belts, in a potential second season, “if anything, it just confirms what we set out to do with this show, which is to not place any limits or restrictions on what the show is allowed to do,” Miller says.
