Bryan Cranston’s Sneaky Pete has been given a series order by Amazon, the streaming service announced on Wednesday.
Originally developed for CBS, Amazon picked up the hour-long pilot – which was directed by executive producer Seth Gordon – earlier this summer, and debuted it on Aug. 7.
In Sneaky Pete — the upcoming Amazon pilot — Giovanni Ribisi plays a con man who steals his cellmate’s identity when he’s released from prison. It’s an idea that Bryan Cranston, who created the show with David Shore (House), says originated from his last Emmy speech for Breaking Bad.
It’s never a good idea to steal from Walter White Bryan Cranston.
In the first trailer for Amazon’s Sneaky Pete — created by Cranston and David Shore (House) — Giovanni Ribisi plays a con man who steals his cellmate’s identity when he’s released from prison. He then begins working for his victim’s family.
