Welcome to NCIS Los Angeles Fan the first and largest fan resource for the show, NCIS Los Angeles.. NCIS LA is the stories of the Naval Criminal Investigation Service's Office of Special Projects takes on the undercover work and the hard to crack cases in LA. A spin off of NCIS it started airing in 2009 on CBS, and now reruns on USA Network as well. Keep checking back for news, spoilers, screencaps and photos from the show, as well as support of the cast members of NCIS LA and their other projects.

EXCLUSIVE: CBS is looking to further expand its NCIS franchise with another spinoff. The untitled project, written/executive produced by NCIS and NCIS: LA executive producer Shane Brennan, is a planted spinoff from NCIS: LA, which Brennan created and serves as showrunner on. It will feature new characters who will be introduced in two-part episode of NCIS: LA later this season. The proposed spinoff, produced by CBS TV Studios, will follow a small mobile team of agents, who are forced to live and work together, as they crisscross the country solving crimes.

Both NCIS: LA and its mothership series, juggernaut NCIS, originated as planted spinoffs, as two-part episodes of JAG and NCIS, respectively. In using NCIS: LA as a launchpad for the new spinoff, CBS is taking a page from the playbook of the long-running CSI franchise, in which the third series, CSI: NY, also started off as a planted spinoff from spinoff CSI: Miami.

Now in its 10th season, NCIS continues to be one of the biggest scripted series on television. Airing behind it, NCIS: LA, now in its fourth season, has been a solid ratings performer and commands one of the highest off-network syndication license fees for a drama series. (It is the subject of ongoing litigation by NCIS creator Don Bellisario.)

The NCIS franchise is currently the strongest on TV, with its ratings eclipsing those of the two remaining CSI series as well as the lone Law & Order drama, SVU. CBS has been pretty successful building procedural franchises with CSI and the NCIS. Its only recent miss was the Criminal Minds spinoff.

Brennan joined NCIS at the beginning of Season 4 in 2006 and was tapped as showrunner the following season. He ran both the mothership series and NCIS: LA for the spinoff’s first two seasons before focusing on NCIS: LA last year. This marks the second pilot for Paradigm-repped Brennan, who also has King & Maxwell at TNT, also produced by CBS TV Studios where Brennan is under an overall deal.

    Love this show and all the characters
    Please do not get rid of deeks and don’t send
    Him back to LAPD he’s perfect for the show he makes it funny. The show wouldn’t be the same without him

  2. Tara says:

    Congrats to Eric & Sarah on their impending journey into parenthood.

  3. Laura says:

    Theory: All season they have been hinting something will happen to Deeks and next season they are going to focus on him like they did with Sam this season, Kensi last season, and Callen the season before.
    I think something is going to happen to Deeks, probably while protecting Sam’s family.

    Happy Birthday to the “Midnight Star”!!!

  5. Tara says:

    Both parts for the pilot were okay. There is only so much a writer can squeeze into a pilot episode when it comes to introducing the characters and the vibe of the show so I will wait to reserve my final judgement of the show if it gets picked up by the network.

  6. Mistri says:

    You have no idea how that made my day, what with season-ending cliffhangers coming up.

  7. tara says:

    Loved this episode. Dave Kalstein who wrote, and Larry Teng who directed, made an awesome team along with the cast, really brought this storyline to life.

  8. tara says:

    I can’t wait for this episode! I can’t wait to see what exactly Hetty & Nate are posing as while undercover.

  9. Tara says:

    My thoughts exactly! Talk about not figuring out that Sam’s wife was also a federal agent till the episode was more than halfway done. I think I may be a little slow on the uptake. This episode definitely kept me on the edge of my

  10. Tara says:

    Do we really need another spin-off? Look at what happened when CBS agreed to a spin-off of Criminal Minds. It didn’t work. CBS got lucky when they spinned off NCIS from Jag, than spun NCIS LA off from NCIS. But something tells me this spin-off of NCIS LA wouldn’t work. I thought Shane Brennan left NCIS to focus solely on NCIS LA. I hope NCIS LA doesn’t suffer with this spin off.
