The Peacock revival of the three-part film series about the hilarious—and often insane—world of competitive acapella has announced its stars. The stars were revealed on March 4th. Sarah Hyland, Jameela Jamil and Lera Abova have rounded out the ensemble cast. They join previously announced cast members Adam Devine and Flula Borg.
The series will follow Devine, who is reprising his role as Bumper Allen from the first two Pitch Perfect films, when he “moves to Germany to revive his music career when one of his songs becomes big in Berlin.”
Borg is reprising his role of Piëter Krämer, who appeared in the second film installment. Piëter “signs Bumper as his only clientAnd brings him to Berlin to pursue his dreams.”
HylAnd, in her first television role since the end of Modern Family in 2020, plays Heidi, “Piëter and Bumper’s cheery and slightly odd American assistant.” Of course, nobody in the The Perfect Pitchuniverse serves as an assistant. Although she is drained from her day job, she secretly hopes to be a singer-songwriter. She moonlights in Berlin as a cabaret performer of original songs.
