Amazon Prime Video announces Australian premiere of Sneaky Pete series

Amazon Prime Video will premiere its Amazon Original series, Sneaky Pete in Australia on January 27.


The announcement:

Amazon Original Series ‘Sneaky Pete’, executive produced by Golden Globe and Emmy award-winners Graham Yost and Bryan Cranston, is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in Australia on January 27. Recently renewed for a second season, the series was the second most streamed original scripted series on an opening day in the US and UK, behind *The Man in the High Castle.

Starring Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar), Marin Ireland (Side Effects), three-time Emmy winner Margo Martindale (The Americans), Peter Gerety (Prime Suspect), Libe Barer (Parenthood), Shane McRae (Still Alice) and Michael Drayer (Mr. Robot), Sneaky Pete revolves around a con man, Marius (Ribisi), who gets out of prison only to find himself hunted by the vicious gangster he once robbed. The series, a co-production with Sony Pictures Television, comes from Executive Producers Graham Yost (The Americans), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Michael Dinner and Fred Golan (Justified), James Degus (All The Way) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).

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 colourful 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.

Prime Video members can watch all 10 episodes of Sneaky Pete as well as other Amazon Original Series anytime, anywhere through the Amazon Prime Video app on Android and iOS phones and tablets, Fire Tablets, popular LG, Sony Android and Samsung Smart TVs or online at PrimeVideo.com—and can also download titles to mobile devices for offline viewing. Members can watch Sneaky Pete in English with French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish subtitled version available and dubbed versions coming soon. Additional Amazon Original Series like Goliath starring William Hurt and Golden Globe winner Billy Bob Thornton, Z: The Beginning of Everything starring Christina Ricci, Woody Allen’s Crisis in Six Scenes, and more, will be added to the global service later this year.

Prime Video is automatically available at no additional cost to Amazon Prime members in Belgium, Canada, France, India, Italy and Spain and to customers in Australia at an introductory price of $2.99 per month for the first six months. Customers who are not already Prime Video members can sign up for a free 7-day trial at PrimeVideo.com.
