Could a dance number be in the future for Red Reddington on The Blacklist?

Probably not. But if the hit NBC thriller ever needs one, they've got the right guy on staff.

Josh Berman joins The Blacklist
Will Red Help

Josh Berman, who created the long-running Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva, is reporting for duty as consulting producer at NBC's The Blacklist, TV Fanatic has learned exclusively.

"I was a huge fan of The Blacklist's first season, and I had watched every single episode as a fan. It's an honor to join such a talented team," Berman told me via email.

While Diva was a lighter dramedy, Berman's past experience lends itself to darker, procedural work. He has been involved in such dramas as Bones, CSI and The Mob Doctor, which he also created for Fox. 

The Blacklist Season 2 premieres on September 22 on NBC.

Jim Halterman is the West Coast Editor of TV Fanatic and the owner of Follow him on Twitter.

The Blacklist Quotes

You know the problem with drawing lines in the sand? With a breath of air, they disappear. You may not like me. You may not understand how or why I do what I do. But I'm here because you want answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet.


Cooper: You have my attention.
Red: Were you wrong?
Cooper: I was wrong.
