Amazon’s Sneaky Pete Starring Giovanni Ribisi/Bryan Cranston Gets Jan Air Date
Amazon’s new original drama Sneaky Pete will land on Friday 13th January 2017 on Amazon Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany and Austria it has been announced.
The show stars Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar, Friends) as Marius who gets out of prison only to find himself hunted by the vicious gangster he once robbed (Bryan Cranston – Breaking Bad). With nowhere else to turn, he 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.
Also starring on the show are Marin Ireland (Side Effects), three-time Emmy winner Margo Martindale (The Americans), Peter Gerety (Prime Suspect), Libe Barer (Parenthood), Shane McRae (Still Alice) and Michael Drayer (Mr. Robot).
The series, a co-production with Sony Pictures Television, comes from Executive Producers Graham Yost (The Americans), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Michael Dinner and Fred Golan (Justified), James Degus (All The Way) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).
“We’re excited that 2017 will be starting with Sneaky Pete, an inside look at the world of con artists,” comments Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios. “The remarkable cast, led by Giovanni Ribisi, and innovative producers Bryan Cranston and Graham Yost have made a fantastic series that we’re excited to bring to customers.”
Sneaky Pete was part of Amazon’s pilot season last year, which means the first episode is available for Prime customers on Amazon Prime Video to watch right now. The full first season will land on the streaming service on Friday 13th January 2017.
