Sneaky Pete was a highly entertaining web series and Amazon Prime has dropped the trailer for the second season. Financial crimes fiction is a good genre and it’s surprising that not many Originals or series revolve around that subject.
Sneaky Pete tells the story of a small-time conman who is in prison and must pay a gangster a large sum, otherwise his brother is dead meat. Pete, played by David Shore, then takes the identity of a cellmate and starts living with the cellmate’s family. The catch here is that cellmate’s family has access to just that kind of money that Pete needs.
The show stars Giovanni Ribisi, Jane Adams, Marin Ireland, Margo Martindale, Shane McRae, Libe Barer, Peter Gerety and Bryan Cranston is the gangster who Pete owes money too.
The first season is streaming now and the second season will be streaming soon. The first season was a good winner and has a rare 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. It was the second most streamed original scripted series when Amazon opened it up.
A good financial caper could be a good addition to the inventory of web series and short films.
