NBC drama “Blindspot” has become the first new series to get picked up for a full season, with the network on Friday announcing it had ordered the back nine episodes of the fall’s top-rated rookie in young adults.
Through three weeks, “Blindspot” has averaged a 2.7 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 9.6 million viewers overall in “live plus same-day” results from Nielsen. And the show’s first two Monday telecasts have each grown by 4.6 million viewers in “live plus-3” — in both cases, the biggest increases for those weeks among all broadcast and cable programs.
“Blindspot” involves the mystery of a beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, who’s found naked in Times Sqauare 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.
The cast includes Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ukweli Roach and Ashley Johnson. Creator and writer Martin Gero serves as executive producer along with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Mark Pellington and Marcos Siega. Pellington directed the pilot episode.
“Blindspot” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions.
