From Executive Producers David Shore and Bryan Cranston, "Sneaky Pete" revolves around a con-man (Giovanni Ribisi) who gets out of prison only to find himself hunted by the vicious gangster he once robbed.
In "Sneaky Pete", con man Marius, with nowhere else to turn, takes cover from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete, and then "reunites" with Pete's estranged family--who have no reason to suspect he's not their long-lost loved one. When a gangster holds his brother hostage for ransom, Marius must find a way to free him while at the same time struggling to keep his lies from backfiring. Meanwhile, his new "relatives" are a colorful group who give him a taste of the loving family he's never had, but have secrets and lies of their own that threaten to drag Marius into a world every bit as dangerous as the one he's trying to escape.
In the new season, Marius is on the verge of starting fresh, when two thugs, believing he is Pete, threaten to kill the family unless he takes them to Pete's estranged mother Maggie (Jane Adams, Twin Peaks) and the millions she stole from their mysterious employer. Now Marius must tread a dangerous line to find the elusive Maggie, protect the family, and keep up the Pete con, all while finagling a way to ditch the thugs and keep the money for himself.
