Sneaky Pete: Near-Perfect Small-time Crime Drama from the TV Gods

All you really need to know about Amazon’s Sneaky Pete is that it’s from David Shore (House), Graham Yost (Justified), and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) … the latter of whom produces and stars. If that’s not enough TV royalty to get the pilot instantly loaded up on your screen, I don’t know what is.

The small-time crime drama about confidence man Giovanni Ribisi rebuilding his life post-incarceration is funny, clever, and expertly told … in other words, exactly like the best bits of both Messrs. Shore, Yost, and Cranston’s respective shows.

Michael Drayer (Mr. Robot) and Margo Martindale (Justified, The Americans) round out the absolutely stellar cast. Probably an early contender for one of my favorite shows of 2017.
