Seems conceptually similar to #2894.
If you serialize('json', [model]) a model with model.id == None, you will produce json containing "pk": "None" instead of "pk": null. The offending line seems to be in django.core.serializers.python.Serializer.end_object, around line 29, when str(obj._get_pk_val()) is called (or this is intentional and the generated "None" needs to be handled further down the line).
Test cases attached.
