SNEAKY PETE (CBS, New!) - David Shore ("House") and Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") are set to team for a new drama at the Eye about "a thirty-something con man who, upon leaving prison, takes cover from his darker past by assuming the identity of a cellmate. Sneaky Pete hides out from the mob while working for the cellmate family's bail bond business, taking down criminals worse than himself. Over time, he discovers a family life he's never had, and possibly true love with a woman who sees through his BS." They'll co-write the Sony Pictures Television-based hour, which has a pilot production commitment. Moon Shot Entertainment's James Degus will also executive produce with Shore Z's Erin Gunn as a co-executive producer. (Deadline.com)

They'll write and executive produce via their Warner Bros. Television-based KoMut Entertainment. (Deadline.com)


UNTITLED INGRID ESCAJEDA PROJECT (CBS, New!) - Ingrid Escajeda ("Justified") has set up a potential drama at the Eye about Gaby Ortiz, "a formidable young prosecutor nicknamed "The Beast" in a suburban Texas county already on the verge of chaos."
