Co-creator Dave “Lil Dicky” Burd stars as the titular character, who “knows he’s destined for rap superstardom — but at what cost? With the pressure mounting as he records his debut album, he has to decide if he’ll sacrifice friendships, love, and his own sense of self in order to make his dream come true,” reads the official synopsis. “Simultaneously exasperating and inspiring to his friends, Dave vows to leave no stone unturned on his quest to become the next superstar.”

Upcoming guest stars include Kendall Jenner, Lil Nas X, Hailey Bieber, Kevin Hart, Doja Cat, J Balvin, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Lil Yachty.
