See what we did there? Very punny.
We were uber excited to receive a call from our pals over at NBC wanting to use WIREWAX for their second interactive video project. Following the wild success of the USA Network's Graceland interactive TV trailer, they set their mind out to create one for the second season of #1 hit drama, THE BLACKLIST.
Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) is an ex-government agent turned most wanted criminal who surrenders to the FBI after avoiding being nabbed for decades. But, of course, there is a catch: He is only willing to cooperate with Liz Keen (Megan Boone), a super rookie - literally, her first day on the job - FBI profiler. Seems a bit suspect, no?
We couldn't agree more and don't trust this Red guy as far as we can throw him. Have we mentioned how weak our upper body is?
Luckily, NBC packed this 6 minute trailer chock-full of exclusive video-in-video content and footage to help us make sense of this dubious character and catch up on everything that happened in Season one.
Viewers can uncover bonus clips by clicking on the custom red targets, enabling them to "get in Red's head" and dig deeper into the mysteries of "Why Liz," "Who is Tom Keen," (spoiler: Liz's sketchy hubby) and gaining insight into the backstory of Red's arch-nemesis, "Berlin."
By creating this trailer with interactivity in mind, NBC masterfully packaged all the best of the first season into a single, short, sharable video. Whether you're already a Blacklist fanatic and need a bit of a refresher or you're just slow to the game and need a quick way to get up to speed, this video is exactly what you need to dive head first in the exhilarating mind-tornado that is THE BLACKLIST.
Don't believe us? See for yourself. But don't say we didn't warn you.
