CBS (CBS) is working on a spinoff of its NCIS franchise after a failed attempt to do so last spring.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the new show will be called NCIS New Orleans and it will be executive produced by NCIS Executive Producer Gary Glasberg. The show’s star — Mark Harmon — will also have a hand in producing the new installment of the series which takes place in several states.
The forensics team of the new show will work on cases that include Mississippi, Louisiana and the Texas panhandle. The show’s logline also mentions that the show is set in New Orleans “with its rich setting of music, fun and debauchery is a magnet for military personnel on-leave. And with fun comes trouble.”
CBS developed a spinoff of the show called NCIS LA: RED but it wasn’t picked up after the pilot.
