Upfronts 2015: First Look at NBC’s Blindspot (video)

SHOW: Blindspot, drama

WHO: Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back), Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Without a Trace), Rob Brown (Treme), Audrey Esparza (Black Box), Ukweli Roach (The Royals), Ashley Johnson (The Killing)

WHAT: A beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, is found naked in Times Square with her body fully covered in intricate tattoos. Her discovery sets off a vast and complex mystery that immediately ignites the attention of the FBI who begin to follow the road map on her body to reveal a larger conspiracy of crime while bringing her closer to discovering the truth about her identity.

WHEN: Mondays at 10 PM EST

WHERE: NBC

BOTTOM LINE: It feels like The Blacklist and Memento had a baby, with Alias as the egg donor, and Blindspot is the end result. There’s definitely an interesting conceit here – and NBC’s audience is more apt to be interested than, say, CBS’ – so it has a chance. Especially airing in that plum post-Voice timeslot. Plus, it’s exciting to see Oscar nominee Jean-Baptiste in anything.
