Spinoff-happy NBC is looking to turn another one of its hit dramas into a bonafide franchise.

The Peacock network is developing a spinoff of The Blacklist, with How to Get Away With Murder‘s Famke Janssen set as the female lead.

The May 12 episode of The Blacklist — directed by Justified vet Michael Dinner — will serve as a backdoor pilot for the potential series. Janssen’s character, Susan “Scottie” Halsted, will be introduced in the May 5 episode.

Rumor has it that Blacklist regular Ryan Eggold will have a major role in the project, with Tom and Scottie’s relationship mirroring the mothership’s Liz (Megan Boone)/Red (James Spader) dynamic.

A source, meanwhile, stresses that there is currently no series commitment for the spinoff. A decision will likely be made in May. (The Blacklist was already renewed for a fourth season, FYI.)

The news comes as NBC is preparing to expand its Chicago Fire franchise via a fourth program, titled Chicago Justice.
