NCIS: LA Two-Parter to Set Up Possible Spin-Off

Get More: News, Pilots

NCIS Los AngelesAnd the NCIS gods keep on giving.

Onetime NCIS boss/current NCIS: Los Angeles showrunner Shane Brennan is developing a spin-off of the hit procedural’s original spin-off, our sister site Deadline reports.

The as-yet-untitled offshoot will first be glimpsed as a two-part episode of NCIS: LA airing later this season — making it a “planted pilot,” as NCIS: LA itself was — and follow a mobile team of agents who live and work together as they cross the country solving crimes. (If it doesn’t wind up called NCIS: Mobile or NCIS: Criminal Minds, I’ll eat my hat.)

NCIS proper of course is TV’s most watched drama series, while NCIS: LA, Deadline notes, commands one of the highest syndication licensing fees for a drama series.

  • So are we going to have Tuesday night next season completely populated with NCIS properties LOL?. They have been having difficulty with the 10 p.m. hour. This could be interesting. LA works. Very different from the original NCIS. Gotta love that this would be a spinoff from a spinoff that was a spinoff from a spinoff of JAG LOL. It keeps going!

    • I could be wrong but if you keep going, NCIS: Mobile would be a descendant of All In the Family.

      • OH, you crack me up, Matt! Seriously, though….a spinoff of a spinoff of a spinoff of JAG! Isn’t that just overkill? Not sure who would watch it….I rather watch NCIS the mothership of NCIS Los Angeles.

      • Good one, Matt! But, (very) Special Agent Bunker? Really? : )

        PS – I think a big reason for LA’s success is the chemistry of its cast that has started to mellow like a good wine – and the great talents of Linda Hunt / Hetty. Hetty is that show’s glue! She’s super – and so are the scripts that write to her character!

    Comment by Kasper F. Nielsen – November 5, 2012 06:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I disagree with you entirely. I like NCIS:LA about a million times better than NCIS. I think the characters are much more likable, the stories are more engaging without the exacerbated patriotism, and, most of all, the pace is so, so much better. NCIS is slower and has no action. Lately, it bores me! It ends up one of the last shows I watch, by the end of the week when there’s nothing better on.

      • I also much prefer NCIS LA to the other. I really have grown to love that show and the characters. I hope this spin off doesn’t take anyone from the show.

      • They are two totally different concepts. NCIS is more of a cop-ish show whild LA is an undercover show. Both deal with Navy and terrorists but they shouldn’t be compared.

        Comment by Brandon – November 5, 2012 08:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’m also in the NCIS: LA preferring camp. It has all the great banter and cast chemistry that makes the original NCIS great, plus it totally amps up the entertainment value. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a particularly good show in terms of artistry (but what on CBS is, aside from TGW?). But every time I watch it, I find it’s just one of the most fun hours of television I see all week. That’s it. It’s just really, really fun and entertaining popcorn TV.

      • I totally agree with you on that. I used to be a fanatic of NCIS, but then I got bored ’cause I didn’t find any excitement in it. Then it came NCIS:LA,I wasn’t so interested on it, but as it wen to season 2, I started watching everyday.

    • I’ve got 2 words for you, Danielle Ruah! I’d watch her reading the phone book. I like both series. NCIS is more serious, while NCIS LA has more humor & action.

    • Same here, it is not remotely an interesting show at all, the original is better.

      So we’re going to have a spin off of a spinoff of a spinoff has that happened before, first NCIS spunoff from JAG, then LA from NCIS, then this wow lol

    Comment by Jenna – November 5, 2012 06:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love both, but I think three will be pushing it. Spin-offs are lucky to succeed and their most recent attempt was a failure. It’s hard to take the same formula that already works and slap it on a new locale, a new team, and get people to respond well. NCIS and NCIS: LA already work. A third will just be like that cousin that you take to prom and ignore the rest of the time so that no one realizes you took your cousin to prom.

    Comment by Ashley – November 5, 2012 06:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • To clarify, I mean they failed with the Criminal Minds spin-off.

      • You can blame that on casting a left wing liberal nut on a show that mostly older people watch.

        Comment by Chuck Finley (AJ) – November 5, 2012 08:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Or perhaps it was because they aired the first couple of episodes of the series out of order? Not having a cohesive storyline (because of that) is probably what mostly contributed to the Criminal Minds spinoff’s demise.

          Comment by Elyse – November 6, 2012 05:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I’d blame it on Forrest Whitaker’s completely phoned in performance, Beau Garrett’s wooden acting, a laughable title (it was basically called Criminal Mind: Criminal Minds), and a complete lack of chemistry for the team. I don’t think TV viewers care too much about actor’s politics. The fact is it was just a poorly conceived show.

          • @DL – you said what I was going to say – it’s been a long time since I saw a show with so little chemistry amongst its cast. I tried to give it a try but no go. Awful writing. Worse casting.

    • How many CSIs are floating around currently? and how many there was at one point?

      Comment by Jerri – November 5, 2012 09:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I kind of have to agree with Ashley. I think “three NCIS’s” is a bit much. Please…don’t go down the road of CSI or L&O. It’s not even necessary :( I think they’re only doing this because CBS knows NCIS (the mothership) doesn’t have much longer on the air (I think it’s time for it to bow out anyways..especially after Tony & Ziva hook up). NCIS LA is gaining in popularity & it’s a very good show on its own. I think it will move into 8:00 spot on Tuesday nights.

      Comment by Dani – November 5, 2012 09:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • NCIS is still performing well in the ratings. I have a feeling it will survive as long as they keep Gibbs, Tony & Ziva (non-NCIS watcher talking). Although I’m sure this is in the back of their mind, I think they would be equally happy to keep three going if they all got good ratings.

        Comment by ben – November 6, 2012 02:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Nah, it’s the whole team. Abby probably most of all other than the three you mentioned, and Duckie and McGee too. Even Palmer. Vance is the only one I can think of that I wouldn’t miss.

          Comment by DL – November 6, 2012 05:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I agree. I don’t even watch it anymore, but I think it’s the whole team dynamic that works for them. I think Abby and Gibbs the most – he’s the leader/father figure, she’s the heart & humor. Tony and Ziva are fun characters on their own, but they really play to the shipper side of the show. Like you, Vance is the only absence that would go mostly unnoticed.

            Comment by Stacy – February 8, 2013 08:22 PM PDT  
        • NCIS is certainly performing “steady” indeed, but I agree with what others are trying to say (at least from my interpretation). NCIS IS in its twilight years as a series, and it has plateaued somewhat. It happens to all aging shows, naturally. Because of the fact that NCIS is supposed to be “Character-Driven” like Glasberg says, I don’t see this series continuing “on and on” – I don’t think that would be wise for NCIS, because of where certain characters in the show currently stand. There needs to be a change for them; they deserve to move on with their lives, and get out from under Gibbs’ shadow – just as people normally progress in their real lives. I’d like to see Tony take on the Team Leader role, now. He’s too old to still be trailing after Gibbs. Borin mentioned that very recently in “Lost at Sea”. Abby is getting to old to be so childish in her role as a Forensic Scientist. I’d like to see her lose the bangs, Farting Bert & the pigtails, and find someone nice to settle down with. The “show” may still be doing well, but the CHARACTERS run the risk of becoming stuck in their roles if the show doesn’t end sooner than later. JMO.

      • NCIS isn’t going anywhere. At least for few years. CBS would be insanely stupid to get rid of it.

        Comment by Steph – November 6, 2012 06:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • NCIS lost its way over the past 2 or 3 seasons. They completely got away from their original formula for success. However, they were hearing it from their fans and this season they seem to be trying to recover that great balance of action and comedy/cast antics that made them a hit. That being said, not sure how much longer Mark Harmon will want to go to work every day. It he decides not to renew his current contract and to retire, the show’s over. It has been 10 years…
        Maybe CBS knows something we don’t and is preparing to fill the void that will be left by the end of the NCIS mothership?

  • I love that a show that was originally canceled by its first network has had this many spin-offs come from it. Way to go, JAG. NBC cancelled it after its first season and CBS picked it up, if I remember correctly. It is the gift that just keeps on giving.

    • Thank you, I was waiting to point out that NCIS was supposedly a spin-off of Jag. Kind of criminal that they haven’t had many, if any, cameos by the original cast of JAG.

    • Actual history was that NCIS started and at first followed JAG on Tuesdays…. As JAG aged and its demo started falling off, it was kicked to Fridays and NCIS took over its 8pm Tuesday slot where it has thrived.. JAG ratings ended up tanking on Fridays and it was over after 10 seasons which NCIS is matching this year.. While it was a planted pilot, none of the Jag characters other than Bud while JAG was still on the air appear even in early seasons.. Maybe, what this spin-off within a spin-off can circle around and have some JAG characters show up…

      They should just wait 3-4 years when it becomes clear the mother ship can’t go on forever and take some of the characters from it that want to stay and then do a spinoff.

  • I’m okay with this. I generally like the type of dramas CBS makes enough to watch them. They’re going to make a procedural one way or another, why not tie it to a “world” we’re already invested in? It creates opportunities for the shows to interact too (though its not necessary, since H50 is sort of part of the “family” now, despite not being ‘spun off.’ Just be glad these aren’t coming writers, or they would be retconning things and JAG, NCIS et al would be ‘spin offs’ of the original H50… hah.

  • Don’t do it! I love both of the shows and JAG, but come on! Instead just have a three part crossover episode with NCIS, Criminal Minds, and NCIS LA. A case that would start around D.C. and cross multiple stateline and then go onto L.A. and the profilers would catch wind of it and help out and they would have one character from each shows appear in all three to tie it together!

  • I love both NCIS and NCIS: LA. Have all seasons on DVD. As long as it has great scenarios, good humor, and interesting characters, this could be good. NCIS: LA worked because it used NCIS as its template, but went off in its own direction. If NCIS3 can have its own quirks and interesting bits, this could seriously work.

  • I absolutely LOVE NCISLA!! It has the perfect balance of drama, crime, humour and team chemistry. Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J are an odd pairing but they are the reason I watch the show.

    I’m neutral with regards to another spin-off, so long as it doesn’t change anything in NCISLA and that it won’t affect the viewer numbers and ratings for NCISLA.

    • Now that would be cool. I like that NCIS LA has a different focus than NCIS, otherwise I probably might not be as invested as I am. On second thought, it’s got Linda Hunt, so I’d watch that talented actor in any show (plus I have to give them props for finally allowing me to stop thinking of Chris O’Donnell as Robin, the Boy Wonder; it’s taken years to get that image out of my head). I think the key to their success in both series is including characters of all ages and talents plus good writing.

  • I wouldn’t be surprised if the spinoff coincides with or precedes (by a season) the end of NCIS the original. Even though it’s so successful, it can’t go on forever. That’s what happened with JAG.

    • I thought about posting something along these lines but thought better of it in the end. If they intended to end the mothership they would spinoff some of the main characters into a new show. Besides, they have more than a few good years left. CSI has been on longer with no sign of stopping yet.

  • I actually watch NCIS and NCIS: LA, and like them both. The problem with all this, a third show will almost definitely dilute the brand. Even if it’s great, viewer fatigue will set in and the numbers would drop for the vanilla and L.A. They did it with CSI and now they’re doing it to this franchise.

La is good , but another spin off won’t good, but NCIS IS THE BEST FOREVER , and again say I respect other opinion and I hope respect me

  • NCIS itself was a JAG spin-off
    It’ s going to be the most expanded universe in Tv history ( Ncis LA also had a crossover episode with Hawaii five O)
    The only universe so wide was the Er with Third Watch and Medical investigation with Neal McDonough

  • Ok, so there will be another spinoff JAG, which NBC wished it never cancelled. But remember about over doing a franchise. Law and Order comes to my mind. I remember four: Law and Order, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Law and Order: Trial By Jury, and Law and Order: Criminal Intent, and now there is only one.

  • JOSH HOLLOWAY BACK ON MY TV!!! Don’t really care in what show he’s in, as long as he’s somewhere every week :D
    Also, I’d like to see what they can come up with for this show. As long as they don’t change NCIS: LA I’m cool with it. We’ll see what they make of it. Who knows? Maybe it’ll be fun?

  • I’m actually happy about the news of the NCIS spinoff. Shane Brennen is one of the best and most underappreciated producers on TV right now, unlike that talentless hack Shonda Rhymes, and anything that gives him the opportunity to have another show on the tube is fine by me. CBS had one of his pilots, King & Maxwell, that was in consideration for this fall, and TNT picked it up. I thought CBS should have gone ahead with it and introduced the characters on one of the NCIS’ to set up a backdoor spinoff for it. However, the key for the new spinoff, just like NCIS and NCIS: LA, is the casting. They have to hire some actors who have chemistry from the get-go.

  • WHAT THE HELL IS CBS THINKING! I’m so not going to watch this. The only way I am going to watch it is when they bring someone in I want to see back on my screen. But I don’t think that will happen.

  • Enough already! It’s overkill, just like “CSI”. None compares to the originals.

  • Maybe everyone should wait until they watch the 2 part episode with the planted pilot to get their panties in a bunch.

    • Ah, but that makes too much sense.

    • Agreed! And truthfully, no one makes anyone watch any show they don’t want to. Just watch something else.

  • “as they travel across the country solving crimes…” WTF? Are they like guns for hire or something? Have badge will travel? Sounds rather silly to me.

  • A spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off (say that five times fast!). How long until JAG is rebooted? LOL

  • Is Shane Brennan hell-bent on single-handedly ruining the NCIS franchise? His specialty seems to be changing beloved characters to something unrecognizable (Ziva,Tony,McGee,Gibbs),and then dumping the problem in someone else’s lap to try to “fix” while he goes onto the next show. More is not better, Mr Brennan. Spend more time and attention trying to get “one” show the best it can be before you go off to reproduce another.
