Only a few short months after announcing the network opted not to pick up the "NCIS" spin off "NCIS:Red," CBS executives are, again, announcing the plans for a spin off of the popular CBS drama.
This time, the series would be set in New Orleans. An embedded pilot that would air during an episode of "NCIS" or "NCIS:LA" in the spring would set up the series which will feature a new crew of agents who will handle cases primarily based in the south. The series will be produced by "NCIS" show runner Gary Glasberg and "NCIS" star Mark Harmon. There is no word, yet, on who might be cast in the series.
An embedded pilot for the spin off "NCIS: Red" aired during the fourth season of "NCIS:LA." The series, which was to star John Corbett ("Northern Exposure") and Kim Raver ("24," "Revolution") was cancelled with the network citing a lack of space in their roster for the series.
"NCIS," which premiered on CBS September 23, 2003, is now entering its eleventh season. The series consistently ranks in the top 10 of all television series and continues to pick up new viewers each season.
