CBS is planning a new NCIS spinoff series to be executive produced by actor Mark Harmon and series creator Gary Glasberg, Deadline reports.
Set in New Orleans, the network will introduce the potential offshoot series through a planted pilot slated to air in spring 2014.
The character-driven project, written by Glasberg and produced by CBS Studios, centers on the the NCIS New Orleans office which handles cases from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle. New Orleans was picked as a backdrop for the show because of its pedigree of a rich setting of music, fun and debauchery that makes it a magnet for military personnel on-leave.
