You'd think Greg Berlanti would be busy enough with superhero shows, but he's also spearheading the ambitious new mystery drama Blindspot, and he's brought a fan-favorite Marvel alum along for the ride.
Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is executive-producing the new NBC drama, which stars Jamie Alexander (Thor) as a young woman who wakes up naked in Times Square covered with tattoos. She has no memory of who she is, and she teams up with an FBI agent played by Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back) to solve the mystery. It's an excellent cast, and the duo seem to slide right into their roles.
The first trailer looks extremely cool, and Alexander even gets the opportunity to show off her Lady Sif moves and kick some butt. The concept looks very slick, and if they can manage to build a solid mythology around the pitch (something Berlanti has done with flying colors in the comic-book realm), this could be one to watch this fall. Yes, other shows have tried (and failed) to build a series around this type of concept, but we have a lot of faith in Berlanti to actually pull it off.
For a bit more background, here's the official synopsis:
A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. But there's one tattoo that is impossible to miss: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. "Jane," Agent Weller and the rest of the FBI quickly realize that each mark on her body is a crime to solve, leading them closer to the truth about her identity and the mysteries to be revealed.
