Sneaky Pete (Amazon 2015, Giovanni Ribisi, Marin Ireland)

Published

on


Sneaky Pete from an acclaimed creative team including Executive Producers David Shore (House), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Erin Gunn (Battle Creek) and James Degus (All the Way).

In Sneaky Pete, con man Marius, with nowhere else to turn, takes cover from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete, and then ‘reunites’ with Pete’s estranged family – who have no reason to suspect he’s not their long-lost loved one. When a gangster holds his brother hostage for ransom, Marius must find a way to free him while at the same time struggling to keep his lies from backfiring. Meanwhile, his new ‘relatives’ are a colorful group who give him a taste of the loving family he’s never had, but have secrets and lies of their own that threaten to drag Marius into a world every bit as dangerous as the one he’s trying to escape.

Sneaky Pete (featuring a guest appearance from Bryan Cranston) was part of Amazon’s pilot season, a unique development process that gives all customers an opportunity to stream and review pilots in order to help choose the next Amazon Original Series that are then available to Prime members. The pilot aired in 2015 with the series following in 2017.
