NCIS Remembers Showrunner Gary Glasberg

CBS’ NCIS this Tuesday night paid on-screen tribute to showrunner Gary Glasberg, who died on Sept. 28, at the age of 50.

At the close of Season 14’s third episode, titled “Privileged Information,” an end card (shown above) appeared, echoing the statement issued by cast and crew the day of their boss’ sudden passing:

“Gary was our rock, our cheerleader, our team captain. He inspired us with his leadership, his creative instincts and keen insight. NCIS will not be the same without him, and each of us will miss his smiling face and unwavering humor, which lifted us every day.”

The same card will appear at the close of NCIS: New Orleans‘ next episode, airing Oct. 11. (USA Network meanwhile added an “In Memory Of Gary Glasberg” line during the NCIS marathon it aired this past weekend.)

Glasberg first joined NCIS in Season 7, as a co-executive producer, and was promoted to EP later that season. Come Season 9, he was handed the showrunner reins by Shane Brennan, who was off to launch NCIS: Los Angeles. In September 2013, he and NCIS frontman Mark Harmon shepherded the New Orleans spinoff, which is currently in its third season.

    Wasn’t this the third episode of season of season 14?

    A classy and thoughtful tribute for a person obviously well thought of, by the cast and crew of NCIS. Very nicely done.

    That was a great tribute to him at the end. I am glad they are also doing it for NCIS New Orleans. He was a great producer. He will be missed. I will miss his smile too.

    I always enjoyed his interviews. He will be missed.

    I watched last night until I saw this and it brought me to tears because it was such a classy memorial. 2016 is such a shitty year for all aspects of the entertainment business. My heart breaks for his home and work families. I will really miss his interviews.
