Amazon has announced it has greenlit the new dramatic Amazon original series “Sneaky Pete” which will debut exclusively on Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan next year.
The story revolves around a con-man (Giovanni Ribisi) who, after leaving prison, takes cover from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete. He moves in with Pete’s unsuspecting family and is roped into the family’s bail bond business.
In order to keep the charade up, he plays the part of a skip tracer, taking down criminals worse than himself – and discovering a family life he’s never had. Marin Ireland, Margo Martindale, Libe Barer, Peter Gerety and Shane McRae also star.
Executive producers include David Shore (“House”), Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Erin Gunn (“Battle Creek”) and James Degus (“All the Way”). The pilot episode was directed by Seth Gordon (“Horrible Bosses”) who also executive produces.
“Sneaky Pete” will be available in SD, HD & HDR 4K for Prime members to stream and enjoy through the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership.
