NCIS: 'Bionic Woman' Lindsay Wagner to Play Bishop's Mom During Sweeps

Somewhere, Jaime Sommers’ enhanced right ear is burning.

TVLine has learned that TV’s erstwhile Bionic Woman, Lindsay Wagner, will guest-star on CBS’ NCIS — as Agent Ellie Bishop’s mother.

Wagner will appear in the most watched drama’s final sweeps outing, airing Tuesday, Nov. 24, when Bishop has cause to take a Thanksgiving-time trip back home to Oklahoma.

“I’m super excited about it, because I’m a huge Lindsay Wagner fan going back to The Paper Chase,” NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg told us. “Also, a bunch of our line producers worked on The Rockford Files, and not many people know this but she was actually in that pilot. So there is all kinds of behind-the-scenes enthusiasm. And Lindsay is excited, too.”

In addition to her three-season (and really fast!) run as The Bionic Woman (and the trio of TV-moves it spawned), Wagner’s more recent TV credits include episodes of Warehouse 13 and Alphas.
