The television fall season has begun and two new thrillers premiere on Sept. 23, 2013: NBC’s “The Blacklist” starring James Spader, and CBS’ “Hostages” with Dylan McDermott and Toni Collette, according to TV Guide.
In “The Blacklist, which USA Today called “Fall’s best new drama,” James Spader is Raymond “Red” Reddington, a career criminal who works with a rookie FBI agent, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), to take down criminals.
According to TV Guide, the show is a procedural with various cases of the week that are tied into “Red’s motives for surrendering” to Elizabeth.

Also Monday, “Hostages,” a serialized drama from Jerry Bruckheimer, premieres on CBS. In it, Toni Collette is a surgeon who must kill the president to protect her family. Dylan McDermott plays the head of the hostage takers, and “insists he has a really good reason” for wanting the president dead, according to Deadline.
