Pilots: CBS Adds David Shore/Bryan Cranston Drama, James Patterson Riff

Cranston Shore

CBS on Friday night ordered another two drama pilots, each with interesting pedigrees.

Having already made a production commitment to the project, CBS officially greenlit a pilot for Sneaky Pete, which is being written and exec-produced by House creator David Shore and Breaking Bad Emmy winner Bryan Cranston.

The series follows a thirtysomething con man who upon leaving prison assumes the identity of a cellmate and then hides from debtors by toiling for his “new” family’s bail bond business. There, he uses his prowess to take down bad guys worse than himself, all while his pretty “cousin” grows suspicious of his motives.

CBS also ordered the pilot For Justice, which is penned by Law & Order vet Rene Balcer and counts Robert DeNiro and best-selling novelist James Patterson among its exec producers. Based (loosely, I would say) on Patterson’s The Thomas Berryman Number, the project follows an FBI agent torn between the radical family she was born into and the professional family she has chosen.

Already this winter, CBS has ordered the drama pilots Code Black, Rush Hour, Limitless, LFE and the planted Criminal Minds spinoff, while Supergirl has been ordered to series.

    “Sneaky Pete is a blue collar White Collar.”
    Just thought I’d get that line out there before half the internet says something similar.

    I love the movie “Limitless”

    Sneaky Pete does sound like White Collar. I would check out the show since Bryan Cranston is an executive producer and co-showrunner.

  4. Count me in for that broadcast version of “Banshee”, Sneaky Pete. David Shore is a good writer and Cranston is an absolute favorite.
