Sky Living in the UK has secured rights to one of the hottest new US dramas – The Blacklist
The BSkyB-owned network has picked up the show (13×60′) from Sony Pictures Television and will air it this autumn closely behind its debut on NBC.
The story follows an ex-government agent (James Spader) who has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives for decades. When he suddenly surrenders to the FBI, he offers to help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist under the condition he only speaks to a young FBI profiler (Megan Boone) fresh out of training school.
The cast also includes Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Ryan Eggold and Ilfenesh Hadera.
It is executive produced by writer Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Davis and John Fox.
Other US dramas to air on Sky Living include Unforgettable, Elementary, Hannibal and the forthcoming Dracula.
