NBC will air a backdoor pilot in the May 12th episode of drama “The Blacklist” focused on Famke Janssen as Susan “Scottie” Halsted. Her character will be introduced in the episode one week earlier. While there are no official details, Scottie is expected to be the mother of the Tom Keen character (Ryan Eggold). Edi Gathegi as Cabal operative Matias Solomon is also supposed to be a series regular.
The proposed spinoff is created by Jon Bokenkamp and John Eisendrath, who executive produce with “The Blacklist” exec producers John Davis and John Fox.
