Bryan Cranston is back on television, but in a different way.
Amazon today announced it has greenlit new dramatic Amazon Original Series Sneaky Pete that will debut exclusively on Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan next year.
The new series comes from an acclaimed creative team including Executive Producers David Shore, Bryan Cranston, Erin Gunn and James Degus.
Sneaky Pete revolves around a con-man (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.
The first season of the series will consist of ten episodes.
“We are excited to bring to Amazon’s customers a new compelling series headlined by Giovanni Ribisi from the minds of David Shore and Bryan Cranston,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. “Sneaky Pete is an incredible addition to Amazon’s expanding drama slate and we are eager for its premiere in 2016.”
