Bryan Cranston Series Gets Saved by Amazon

Whew.

Sneaky Pete gets another life. The show produced by Bryan Cranston (who makes a cameo in the pilot, available now on Amazon) and David Shore was originally developed and piloted for CBS for the fall, but when the network passed on it, Amazon picked up the show. Sneaky Pete stars Giovanni Ribisi as Marius, a con man who escapes his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate — a guy named Pete — and involving himself with Pete's long-estranged family and their bail-bond business. Sneaky Pete also stars Marin Ireland, Margo Martindale, Peter Gerety, Libe Barer, and Shane McRae as the family. Skinny Pete is still showless.
