NBC’s “Blindspot” season one is set to premiere on Monday (Sept. 21) and it’s getting a lot of buzz.
Here are the things you have to know before you include “Blindspot” in your to-watch list every Monday night.
Jaimie Alexander will play the lead role of Jane Doe. Alexander is best known for her role as Lady Sif in “Thor: The Dark World.”
In “Blindspot” episode one, naked Jane will be found tucked inside a duffel bag that was left at New York City’s Times Square. Jane will later turn out to be the first female member of a SEAL team. The story will then evolve around the mysterious tattoos all over her body.
“Blindspot” creator Martin Gero, a self-professed fan of brainteaser movies such as “The Da Vinci Code,” told Entertainment Weekly that every tattoo on Jane’s body has a meaning.
“Everything is part of an incredibly complicated backstory — and the reasoning to do it this way is actually pretty sound even though it seems totally crazy. Nothing on her body was put haphazardly,” he said
“These are actual clues and codes that if the audience wants to pause and think about it, it’s actually something they can decipher,” Gero added.
According to parade.com, it takes more than seven hours to apply the full-body tattoo design on Alexander.
It’s a mystery-thriller series that makes it more interesting to watch.
Actor Sullivan Stapleton said it is not just a traditional procedural police drama. “We’re not solving the cases in the office and then going out for criminals and arresting them. We’re actually chasing them through the streets of New York and winding up in great sequences,” he told parade.com.
Stapleton plays the role of FBI special agent Kurt Weller, whose name was tattooed at the back of Jane.
The mind-boggling and action-packed show is expected to be a hit because it is also backed with a seasoned team.
Aside from Gero, Greg Berlanti is also one of the executive producers of “Blindspot.” Berlanti has been known for his creations such as “Arrow,” “The Flash”, “Dawson’s Creek,” “Political Animal,” and “Everwood.”
