You’d be forgiven to have not seen Amazon’s Sneaky Pete just yet, given its Amazon premiere this past Friday, original conception as a CBS show and multi-year development. Still, the new con man drama from the minds and stars of Justified is sneaking by with a second season, Bryan Cranston or no.

'New Girl's second season may well be remembered for the first kiss between lead charactes Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel), but it would be better described as the season of the parents. Not only has 'New Girl' season 2 featured such famous faces as Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis as Jess' parents, and recently 'Luck's Dennis Farina as Nick's dad, but its latest acquisition is that of 'Justified' Emmy-winner and 'The Americans' star Margo Martindale as Nick's mom! Find out what takes the gang to Chicago to meet Nick's family inside!

'Justified' Emmy Winner Margo Martindale Joins FX's 'The Americans'

It's good to be in the FX family. Many of 'Justified' fans (and some Emmy voters) would argue that the FX gunslinger series never had a villain as good or a performance as magnetic as Margo Martindale's Mags Bennett, and now the network is doubling down on the esteemed actress. Martindale will join FX's buzz-worthy upcoming drama 'The Americans' for at least eight episodes, but which side will she be on? Is another Emmy in the works?
