Those who go to St. Francis College may have noticed a film shoot last week outside of the school’s main campus entrance. The film shooting that was taking place on Tuesday October 24th, 2017 was a rehearsal taping for the Sony Pictures Entertainment Crime Drama Series Sneaky Pete. The Sneaky Pete shooting took place on Remsen Street between Court Street and Clinton Street.
The taping outside of St. Francis College followed an earlier Sneaky Pete shoot sighting in Carroll Gardens. One week earlier on Tuesday October 17th, 2017, Sneaky Pete was filming in Carroll Gardens on Court Street between 1st Place and 3rd Place. The images above is from that film shoot.
The Sneaky Pete series is produced by House creator David Shore and Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston. Sneaky Pete stars actors Giovanni Ribisi, Marin Ireland, Shane McRae, and Margo Martindale. According to Variety.com’s Maane Khatchatourian, Ribisi stars as the lead character named Marius Josipovic, a criminal who steals the identity of his cellmate. After being released from prison, Josipovic (Ribisi) works for his cellmate’s family of bail bondsmen.
Sneaky Pete’s pilot episode debuted on August 7th, 2015. The next month, a full series was ordered by Amazon Instant Video. On January 13th, 2017, the series premiered in its entirety on Amazon Instant Video, and was renewed for a second season six days later. The filming shoots that took place in Carroll Gardens and outside of St. Francis College in late October 2017 are both presumed to have been production shoots for the upcoming second season of Sneaky Pete.
