What is it? Who is Red Reddington? Well, we know a little about him: in the show, he’s one of the most wanted criminals in the world, and he’s just surrendered to the FBI. Quickly locked up, he offers the authorities a list of dangerous criminals that he’ll help the Bureau catch. But there’s a catch to all the catching: he’ll only speak to rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). We know one more thing about Red: James Spader plays him in a role that appears designed to let him snack on scenery. While the trailer for the pilot was a little spoilery, the show could be fun, and Joe Carnahan directed that first episode, which has our interest piqued.
In the US: NBC, Mondays starting September 23 In the UK: Sky Living, airdate TBC.
