NBC has released the Official Synopsis of The Blacklist episode “The Kazanjian Brothers” (7.19) that will be aired on Friday, May 15 at 08:00-09:00 PM.
The Seventh Season Finale! The season’s 19th episode was midway into filming in New York when TV productions across the industry were halted due to COVID-19. Looking to do something out of the box to finish the episode and close out the season, producers came up with an idea to add graphic novel-style animation that would incorporate with the already filmed live-action scenes.
Cast members recorded dialogue from their homes for the animated scenes to ensure a seamless transition between the two styles as editors and animators complete their work remotely.
The Task Force investigates an accountant who works for lucrative criminals in order to find the violent and thuggish brothers hired for his protection. Meanwhile, Liz must make a momentous decision.
“The Blacklist” is starring James Spader (Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington), Megan Boone (Elizabeth Keen), Diego Klattenhoff (Donald Ressler), Hisham Tawfiq (Dembe Zuma), Amir Arison (Aram Mojtabai) and Harry Lennix (Harold Cooper).
The Blacklist, for decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen, an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job.
The Blacklist is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment for NBC.
