NBC Adds Greg Berlanti Amnesia Thriller to Pilot Orders
NBC is anxious to add a thriller for the upcoming season, picking up another conspiracy drama pilot.
The network has given a pilot order to Blindspot from Greg Berlanti's prolific Berlanti Productions, currently housed at Warner Bros. TV. The project, which centers on a woman with no memory who wakes up naked in Times Square, has been in development since August.

Written and executive produced by Martin Gero (Bored to Death), Blindspot's nude amnesiac is covered in detailed tattoos that immediately catch the eye of the FBI. Once her ink is revealed to be some sort of road map, a conspiracy much larger than her mysterious appearance emerges.
Earlier Friday, NBC added a Las Vegas-set conspiracy thriller about a former sniper turned security expert who's wrongly accused of killing his wife. With the pickup, Blindspot brings NBC's drama pilot haul to six.
The project marks Gero's latest TV foray, following The CW's Canadian import The L.A. Complex. He's repped by WME and Meridian Artists. Berlanti is with WME and Felker Toczek.
