Scott Bakula To Star In ‘NCIS’ New Orleans Spinoff

CCH Pounder also joins cast

CBS has enlisted Scott Bakula to topline its prospective “NCIS” spinoff set in New Orleans.

Bakula will play the special agent who oversees NCIS cases for the Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana region. The planted spinoff is set to air as a two-part episode of the mothership “NCIS” series this spring.

CCH Pounder, an alum of “The Shield” and other shows, has also joined the cast, playing a medical examiner. 

“NCIS” star Mark Harmon and exec producer Gary Glasberg are shepherding the spinoff episodes as exec producers for CBS TV Studios.

Coming off strong reviews for his turns in the TNT dramedy “Men of a Certain Age” and the HBO telepic “Behind the Candelabra” (for which he earned an Emmy nom), Bakula has been busy of late. He has a recurring role on HBO’s new dramedy “Looking,” and he will be seen in two upcoming features: “Basmati Blues,” opposite Brie Larson and Donald Sutherland,” and “Elsa and Fred,” opposite Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer.

Bakula’s repped by ICM Partners, Anonymous Content and attorney Don Steele.
