NCIS: Los Angeles preview from EP Scott Gemmill:
What’s coming up?: Season 8 sees the NCIS: Los Angeles team thrust out of their individual comfort zones with everything from leadership shake-ups, marriage proposals, and new roommates, to potential career-ending injuries and personal tragedy.
Something you’ll learn about a character is… We will learn that there’s much more to Technical Analyst Nell Jones than her skills with a smart tablet. In fact, the Nellverine is a bit of a bad ass.
The strangest research we’ve done for an episode is… Every week the writers wind up on another government watch list because of the stories they’re researching — be it learning how to make untraceable automatic weapons from parts sourced on the Internet, to retrieving radioactive material from the machinery in a hospital blood bank. Eventually the entire writing staff will be incarcerated because they have become security threats.
One thing you’ll see on this show that you won’t see on the others is… The NCIS: LA team is an Office of Special Projects (OSP) unit that uses state-of-the art technology and the latest spy craft to go prevent threats to this country both domestically and around the globe. Nowhere else on television are you going to find yourself traveling from the bikini beaches of Malibu to the brutal Syrian desert in pursuit of the bad guys. NCIS: LA does it all.

Will this be the year that Callen (Chris O’Donnell) finally learns the truth about his family on NCIS: Los Angeles? And if so, what price will he have to pay?
Season 7 kicks off with a small time jump, picking up three months after the end of Season 6, when viewers learned that Callen’s presumed-dead father is actually alive. And it’s only a matter of time before Callen makes the same discovery. “The very heart of what this show is is Callen’s search for his family,” executive producer Shane Brennan tells TVGuide.com. “We are stepping closer and closer to finally giving Callen closure.”
