NBC Orders “Blacklist” Spin-Off To Series

NBC is officially moving forward with “The Blacklist: Redemption,” the upcoming spin-off to its flagship James Spader crime procedural series at Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.

Famke Janssen, Ryan Eggold, Edi Gathegi and Tawny Cypress star in the project which will mark the network’s sixth new drama for next season and will likely have a mid-season launch.

This past week’s May 12th episode served as a backdoor pilot for the series which follows now single father Tom Keen (Eggold) who joins forces with the ruthless Susan ‘Scottie’ Hargrave (Janssen) at the covert mercenary organization Grey Matters.

The group solves problems governments don’t dare touch, while Tom has his own agenda which involves looking into his past and his mother – ‘Scottie’. Jon Bokenkamp and John Eisendrath are penning and executive producing alongside John Davis and John Fox.
