New 'NCIS' Spin-Off Set in New Orleans Is in the Works
The potential new series will be introduced as a special two-parter in season 11 of the CBS hit drama series.


"NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" is going to open another branch. After ten successful years of the procedural drama series, CBS is looking to expand the hit show with another spin-off set in New Orleans.

The potential new series will be introduced in two episodes of "NCIS" season 11. The two-parter will be filmed in February and air in spring. "NCIS" star/executive producer Mark Harmon and executive producer/showrunner Gary Glasberg will executive produce the spin-off.

The logline for the spin-off reads, "The NCIS New Orleans office handles cases from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle. New Orleans with its rich setting of music, fun and debauchery is a magnet for military personnel on-leave. And with fun comes trouble. It is a natural backdrop for a unique character driven spin-off."

"NCIS" has spawned a spin-off, "NCIS: Los Angeles", which will return for its fifth season this coming Tuesday. Last spring, CBS developed another potential spin-off called "NCIS LA: RED" with John Corbett starring, but the pilot wasn't picked up to series.

The new season of "NCIS" will premiere September 24 at 8 P.M. This will be the last season for longtime cast member Cote de Pablo who has played Ziva David since season 3. She will appear in several episodes to finish Ziva's story.
