Created by Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Sneaky Pete is a perfect thriller TV Show.
A con man learns that a violent gang awaits his release from prison, so he decides to take his cell-mate’s identity and hide with his family. He immediately faces an array of threats that make the first season of Sneaky Pete so cut-throat gripping: the gang getting to him, his new identity being exposed, the police, and it doesn’t help that the only member left of his family, his brother, is also in all sorts of trouble.
Sneaky Pete is probably the Amazon Prime Original that suffers the most from the platform’s awkward branding. Had it been on Netflix, your coworkers wouldn’t be able to stop talking about it for years.
Giovanni Ribisi who plays the main character is out-of-this-world amazing.
