Watch The Blacklist

The Blacklist is an American drama that centers around Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader). A former government agent, and one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives, Red has managed to avoid capture for decades. He surrenders in person at the FBI Headquarters, claiming that he has the same interest as the FBI: finding dangerous criminals and terrorists. Reddington agrees to cooperate fully with the FBI under the condition that he only communicate with Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), a rookie FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico.

After the FBI brings down the first terrorist Red provides intel on, he insists this criminal will only be the first of many. Red has a list of terrorists he spent years compiling and insists the FBI doesn't know of these criminals existence. These are the terrorists that are the most dangerous and most important to catch, according to Red. He calls his list "The Blacklist".
