Sky Living HD to air The Blacklist

James Spader’s much-buzzed about show gets UK home.

Sky Living HD

James Spader’s new show The Blacklist has been snapped up by Sky Living HD it has been announced.

The Blacklist has created a lot of buzz during upfront season and Sky Living HD has signed an exclusive deal with Sony Pictures Television.

The synopsis for the show is:

For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, “The Office,” “Boston Legal”) has been one of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, Law & Order: Los Angeles), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job. What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. What are Red’s true intentions? Why has he chosen Liz, a woman with whom he seemingly has no connection? Does Liz have secrets of her own? Zamani is only the first of many on a list that Red has compiled over the years: a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all… with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner.

Commenting on the acquisition, Director of Sky Living Antonia Hurford-Jones said. “I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing the series that everyone was talking about at the LA screenings to Sky Living. The Blacklist is an absolutely outstanding show with an exceptionally talented actor at its centre and will be the perfect addition to our brilliant existing series such as Elementary and Hannibal, as well as the UK original commissions that we are launching this Autumn, such as The Face and Dracula. I can’t wait for our customers to see it.”

The Blacklist is due to being in
the US in September on NBC with the UK premiere to take place soon after.
