“Sneaky Pete,” the Amazon drama series starring Giovanni Ribisi, is relocating to California from the New York area due to the California tax incentive program that has approved $9.2 million for the show’s third season.
The California Film Commission said Monday that “Sneaky Pete” is expected to spend more than $53 million in qualified expenditures for its upcoming season and will employ nearly 250 cast members, 220 crew and 2,510 extras. Qualified expenditures don’t include star salaries or other above-the-line expenses.
“Sneaky Pete,” which is a Sony Pictures Television production, was created by actor Bryan Cranston and David Shore. Its first two seasons were set in upstate New York and filmed in New York City and in the surrounding suburbs.
