Blindspot May Become the NBC's Next Big Hit
Blindspot can be described as a mixture of all the best thriller aspects of NBC’s hit drama The Blacklist and the tattoo motif from Prison Break.
In the show Jamie Alexander plays a mysterious tattooed woman (known as "Jane Doe") who is found in a duffle bag in the middle of Time's Square, New York City. Jane Doe as lost her memory and does not know her own identity. The FBI discovers that each tattoo contains a clue to a crime they will have to solve.
The project hails from Greg Berlanti who also producers The CW’s hit superhero dramas The Flash and Arrow. Although the show does seem exciting at first, the producers and writers will have to find ways in order to make the outlandish plot work over an entire season.
Showslike Blindspot which track a mysterious character as they begin to discover themselves while the viewers also discover more of the character can easily become lost and result in nonsencical plots to keep the show going (like NBC’s cancelled drama Believe). Luckily for Blindspot, it has the police procedural/FBI aspect which contrasts the serialised revelations of ‘Jane Doe’ in order to keep audiences interested for the long haul.
Blindspot has the potential to become NBC's much needed next big hit drama. After The Blacklist's hype died down exponentially after the first season, the weight is even heavier on Blindspot to become a success.
