Sneaky Pete

Sneaky Pete revolves around a con man, Marius (Giovanni Ribisi), who gets out of prison only to find himself hunted by the vicious gangster (Bryan Cranston) he once robbed. With nowhere else to turn, he takes cover from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete, "reuniting" with Pete's estranged family -- who have no reason to suspect he's not their long-lost loved one. When the gangster takes his brother hostage, Marius must search desperately for a way to free him while at the same time scrambling to maintain his new identity and get the price off his own head. Meanwhile, his new "relatives" are a colorful group that may drag Marius into a world every bit as dangerous as the one he's trying to escape -- and, just maybe, give him a taste of the loving family he's never had. The series also stars Marin Ireland (Side Effects), Margo Martindale (The Millers), Peter Gerety (Prime Suspect), Libe Barer (Parenthood) and Shane McRae (Still Alice), and is executive produced by Graham Yost (Justified), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Degusand Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).

The Tick

In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero.The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural),Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.

Patriot

Patriot follows the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner (Australian newcomer Michael Dorman, Wonderland). His latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going nuclear, requiring him to forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous "non-official cover"—that of a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm. A bout with PTSD, the Federal government’s incompetence, and the intricacies of keeping a day job in the “front” industrial piping company, cause a barrage of ever-escalating fiascos that jeopardize Tavner’s mission. Patriot is in large part about the lesser known, unglamorous aspects of life as an intelligence officer deep undercover, with work that frequently places John in untenable situations where he’s often forced to choose between bad alternatives. The unraveling of a plan, and the effort to conceal that unraveling, causes matters to complicate further.

The series also stars Terry O’Quinn (Lost) as Tom Tavner, John's State Department Director of Intelligence father, Michael Chernus (Manhattan), as John's older brother Edward Tavner, a young Texas congressman, Kathleen Munroe (Call Me Fitz), as John's wife Alice,Aliette Opheim (Sandor slash Ida) as Agathe, a brilliant young homicide detective from Luxembourg hot on John's trail, and Kurtwood Smith (That 70s Show) as Mr. Claret, John's stickler of a new "boss" at the piping firm. Patriot is written and directed by Steven Conrad(The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Weather Man), and executive produced by Conrad, Gil Bellows (Temple Grandin), Glen Ficarra (Crazy Stupid Love, Focus), Charlie Gogolak (Focus), and John Requa (Crazy Stupid Love, Focus).

The Man in the High Castle

Based on Philip K. Dick's Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, the Emmy-winning, one-hour drama series The Man in the High Castle explores what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. While Germany controls much of the East Coast and Japan controls the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains have become a “neutral zone”—and ground zero for a rebellion, led by a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle." Some citizens struggle against the fear, oppression and inequality—others accept their lives, as compromised and unfulfilling as they might be. But after a series of enigmatic films surface depicting a world vastly different from their own, some begin to question the very nature of their reality.

The Man in the High Castle is executive produced by Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott (Blade Runner) and David W. Zucker (The Good Wife), along with Isa Dick Hackett (The Adjustment Bureau).
