‘Blindspot’ EP Promises ‘Great Resolution by Episode 2, Episode 10’

“Blindspot” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Martin Gero promised TV critics that their new NBC mystery show won’t be the type that’s all teaser and no scheduled payoff.

“I like seasons of television to feel like books in a series of novel,” Gero (pictured above) — the more vocal of two — told reporters Thursday during the series’ Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour. “There is a very clear, beginning and middle and end to this season.”

“In Episode 2, you’re going to get a pretty good indication of why it’s Kurt Weller’s (Sullivan Stapleton) name on [Jane Doe’s, played by Jaimie Alexander] back,” he continued. “We don’t lay breadcrumbs, we like whole loaves — every episode — of story.”

“You’re going to get some great resolution by the end of the year,” Gero guaranteed, emphasizing: “you’re going to get some great resolution by Episode 2, Episode 10.”

“Blindspot” unravels the story of an unknown woman found in Times Square with no memory, but with clue-filled tattoos covering her body.

Earlier in the Beverly Hilton ballroom panel, Gero described his new broadcast offering as “a procedural for people who don’t like procedurals, and a character drama for those who don’t like character dramas.”

Finally, Gero is counting on his tattoo-covered leading lady will have enough material — and ink — to carry “Blindspot” well into syndication: “She has nine or 10 years of tattoos,” he quipped, “and the legs are just for the spinoff.”

“Blindspot” premieres Sep. 21 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
