Jon Bokenkamp is an American writer and producer best known for his role in writing the screenplay for Taking Lives, The Call, and creating the NBC series The Blacklist[1] along with The Blacklist: Redemption.[2]

Bokenkamp was encouraged to enter a script writing competition by friend and fellow Nebraskan, Todd Nelson, creator of the Nebraska Coast Connection. After winning the competition, Jon landed an agent and his first paid assignment, rewriting a horror film for Exorcist director Billy Friedkin.[3]

Success allowed Bokenkamp to return to his hometown where he earned the 2013 Hub Freedom Award for his work restoring the historic World Theater in downtown Kearney, Nebraska.[4]
