Written by The Brave creator Georgaris, NBC ‘s Blank Slate is a high-concept procedural about a government agent who may not be what he seems.
Special Agent Alexander McCoy (Matt Passmore) is a legend in law enforcement, the agent we all hope is out there, the agent we’d all like to be. The only issue is … he doesn’t actually exist. He’s a ghost, a phantom. So what happens when a man claiming to be Alexander McCoy walks through the door with all of his skills and knowledge, but with an agenda nobody will see coming.
Georgaris executive produces with Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and co-creator John Fox. Universal Television, where Davis Entertainment and Georgaris are under deals, is the studio.
