‘NCIS’ Spin-Off In The Works At CBS

NCIS Season 11 Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

NCIS has a spin-off in the works! According to TV Line, the successful crime drama will introduce a new pilot featuring a whole new roster of New Orleans specialists to fall in love with. The storyline will see the agents tackling cases that span from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to Texas panhandle.

The CBS venture will be executive-produced by ‘NCIS’ showrunner Gary Glasberg and series star Mark Harmon, who plays Leroy Jethro Gibbs. The Orleans off-shoot is scheduled to hit the airwaves in the spring of 2014 when execs test the interest of the project as a “planted pilot.” The reported two-part feature will be produced in February before being unveiled to the crime show fans.

It was less than a year ago that the network debuted the ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ spin-off entitled ‘NCIS: Red’ which premiered last spring featuring actors Kim Raver (24) and John Corbett (Northern Exposure). Unfortunately, the pilot didn’t resonate with execs, failing to find a spot on the 2013-14 schedule.
