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

NCIS Bishops Mom

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.
