Everybody’s favorite former meth magnate has a new project. Bryan Cranston has created the new show Sneaky Pete, about a scam artist who steals his cellmate’s identity once he’s released from prison and begins working for his victim’s family. 

The show was originally developed for CBS, but after they passed on the project Amazon swooped in and is set to premiere the pilot episode on Aug. 7. As with other Amazon series, the site’s viewers will vote on whether or not the show becomes a regular series.

Cranston co-created the series with David Shore (House), who also wrote the pilot, and stars Giovanni Ribisi (Ted 2) as the titular conman, as well as Margo Martindale, Libe Barer, Marin Ireland, Peter Gerety, and Shane McRae.
