The suspense thriller starring James Spader will be available in 11 languages to more than 100 million SPT Networks viewers worldwide, airing across Asia and Poland on AXN, and on Sony Entertainment Television (SET) across Latin America and Brazil, as well as Russia and the CIS.

The Blacklist follows former US government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (Spader), who for decades has been one of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives. Now he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer – he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), a FBI profiler with little experience.

Zamani is only the first of many on a list that Red has compiled over the years: a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all, with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner.

Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Davis and John Fox serve as executive producers. The Blacklist is produced by Davis Entertainment Company in association with Sony Pictures Television.

SPT Networks original commissions also include Hannibal and Crossing Lines, which have both been picked up for second seasons.
