The one-hour action thriller is produced by Berlanti Productions (The Flash, Arrow, Pan) and Writer & Executive Producer Martin Gero (Stargate: Atlantis). In Blindspot, Stapleton stars as hardened FBI agent Kurt Weller, who is drawn into a complex conspiracy when a naked amnesiac, Jane Doe (Alexander), is found in Times Square covered in a series of cryptic tattoos … including his name on her back. As Weller and his teammates at the FBI begin to investigate the veritable treasure map that is Jane Doe’s tattoos, they are drawn into a high-stakes underworld that twists and turns through a labyrinth of secrets and revelations — and the information they uncover might ultimately change the world. From Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions, Blindspot airs Mondays at 10/9c on NBC.
After that, Warner Bros. will host a pilot screening of Supergirl, along with a Q&A with the stars and executive producers of the show.

Next on the agenda is a special video presentation and Q&A with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The tagline of the show is: When heroes alone are not enough, the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront the immortal threat of Vandal Savage. Attendees will be treated to a sneak peek at upcoming footage from the show, followed by a Q&A with series stars and executive producers.

The day gets topped off with Person of Interest, including a special video presentation and Q&A. Person of Interest returns to New York for the fifth year. John Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) have saved countless lives thanks to the omniscience of their supercomputer and their crack team of brave misfits — NYPD detective Lionel Fusco (Kevin Chapman), the unpredictable cyber-hacker Root (Amy Acker) and missing-in-action operative Sameen Shaw (Sarah Shahi) — but a new threat puts their mission in jeopardy and their lives in even greater danger. Samaritan, the rival AI, has initiated its lethal “correction.” Finch’s Machine is essentially dead. Shaw is still missing. And the team is once again hiding in plain sight. But with Samaritan’s invisible grip tightening everywhere, will Finch be able to rebuild and resurrect The Machine? And if he does, will it be the same Machine when it comes back online? From Bonanza Productions, in association with Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television, Person of Interest returns Midseason for its fifth season on CBS.
