Warning: This article might exceed the “capital letter quota” for the internet. Let’s lay it out for you. NCIS was a spin-off from JAG. NCIS: LA was a spin-off from, well, NCIS. Now, CBS wants to continue their successful trend and give you a spin-off from NCIS: LA. Current NCIS: LA showrunner, Shane Brennan, is developing a spin-off with CBS.
The project does not have a title and the pilot will actually be planted into the current NCIS: LA season, probably sometime in the spring of 2013, just like NCIS: LA‘s pilot was thrown into the NCIS season. The project will focus on a mobile team of agents who will solve crimes across the country.
The NCIS series, just like CSI, has been uber successful for CBS, so it’s no surprise this is in the developing stages. What do you think? Would you watch? Who would you like to see star in this new show?
