CBS Developing New Orleans-Set ‘NCIS’ Spinoff


Mark Harmon, Gary Glasberg to exec produce new show in the 'NCIS' franchise

Television’s biggest scripted show is about to get bigger.

CBS is planning another “NCISspinoff, Variety has confirmed. It will center around the Naval Criminal Investigative Service‘s New Orleans office. The city, with its debauchery and party scene, is a magnet for military personnel on leave and the trouble that comes with all the off-duty fun.

The spinoff, to be planted in two “NCIS” episodes slated to air in the spring, will be exec produced by “NCIS” exec producers Mark Harmon and Gary Glasberg.

“NCIS,” itself a spinoff of CBS drama “JAG,” routinely cracks 20 million viewers in its primetime timeslot. Show already launched spinoff “NCIS: Los Angeles” in 2009.

“NCIS” begins its 11th season Tuesday night on the Eye.

  1. How can I find out about submitting myself for this show.. I love NCIS.

    Love NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles. Can’t wait for another series. Don’t be like CSI did and drop off a good show. Loved CSI Miami and quit watching all CSI shows when they dropped that one.

    Glad to have the crew here; there will certainly be no shortage of ideas and/or locations for crime scenes. If the location manager ever needs any farm scenes or horses, we live on the north shore and have lots of both.
