Writer Martin Gero (The L.A. Complex) will executive-produce with Berlanti.

In addition, NBC ordered:

Heart Matters, a medical soap about Alex Panettiere, a heart transplant surgeon who struggles to balance her romantic and professional life. Amy Brenneman (Private Practice) and Brad Silberling will executive-produce alongside writer Jill Gordon (My So-Called Life)Susan Carlson, Eric Carlson, Kelly Meyer and Kathy Magliato will co-executive-produce.

    Berlanti needs to cool down a bit. He’s already got Arrow, The Flash, The Mysteries of Laura, and working on the Pan movie, Supergirl, a potential ATOM TV show and some others I can’t remember.

  2. Dude says:

    So Unveiled is just Touched By an Angel then?

  3. jj says:

    blindspot sounds really interesting!

  4. Babygate says:

    I’m intrigued by Blindspot. As long as the writing can deliver. The guardian angel idea sounds an awful lot like Touched by an Angel in which Roma starred. The medical one sounds lame.

    Was hoping for Chicago Med.

  6. Eric says:

    Am I the only one who thinks that the guy in the picture looks as though Mark Ruffalo and Walton Goggind somehow made a baby?

  7. Et al says:

    Blindspot somewhat reminds me of the original concept of Mulholland Drive before abc passed and David Lynch turned it into a feature. I think I’m in. I’m just thrilled they’re launching a drama that doesn’t start with ‘Chicago’.

  8. Lauren says:

    Imagine stretching Blindspot’s story, the woman’s identity will be revealed in season 10 or 5. If it’s only for a single season–great!

    It would be ironic if Unveiled replaced Constantine on Fridays.

    Mori’s book and phenomena was tthe finishing blow on the industry, specifically for kids’ games.

    But they just don’t seem tto understand tha most of us have not developed sufficient developmental capabilities to help it become happen. There is certainly not that puts you in solid picturre than hearing news ites in the horse.

    Sounds like John Doe the FOX show

  12. David4 says:

    All canceled within a year. What else you got NBC?

  13. Maryann says:

    Berlanti’s Blindspot sounds exciting. I will definitely be on board if it gets a pickup.

  14. K says:

    Heart Mattere is Greys Anatomy and Heart of Dixie. And we have a Touched by an Angel remake? Pass

  15. It can be exciting to observe these kinds of minor pets scampering with regards to undertaking his or her employment.
    Your productiveness is going to increase when you start using the robotic vacuum.

    Men and women need to willpower them selves by simply cleanup their
    unique wreck nevertheless in case they just don’t contain the occasion, they can often have
    a Bobsweep robotic machine.

    This doesn’t look very promising for NBC. After reading this, all the fans who want renewals on The Mysteries of Laura(not me) and State of Affairs should start feeling very positive. Thank goodness NBC realized what a great thing they have in Law & Order SVU. In case CBS is ridiculous and dumps Blue Bloods, NBC should go after that too.
