First Look: Watch the Trailer for NBC's 'The Blacklist' (Video)
NBC is betting big on The Blacklist.
The freshman drama starring James Spader has just landed the best time slot on the network's 2013-14 fall schedule -- on Mondays at 10 p.m. following The Voice. It's the same slot where the network launched Revolution this season, with the J.J. Abrams drama moving to lead off Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
Ahead of its Monday upfront presentation to Madison Avenue ad buyers -- and the release of the full trailers for all its 12 freshman shows, NBC has released the first trailer for The Blacklist, below.
Spader stars as the world's most wanted criminal who mysteriously turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he's ever worked with. His only condition is he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent (Megan Boone) with whom he seemingly has no connection.
Watch the trailer for the drama, from Perfect Stranger's Jon Bokenkamp and showrunner John Eisendrath (Alias) and producers John Fox and John Davis, below.
