NCIS is an American action police procedural TV series, revolving around a fictional team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The concept and characters were initially introduced in two episodes of the CBS series JAG. This spin-off from JAG premiered on September 23, 2003, on CBS. NCIS has entered into the seventeenth full season and has gone into broadcast syndication on the USA Network.
Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill are co-creators and executive producers of the premiere member of the NCIS franchise. As of 2019, NCIS is the second-longest-running scripted, non-animated U.S. primetime TV series currently airing, surpassed only by Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999-present), and is the 7th-longest-running scripted U.S. primetime TV series overall.
In season six, a two-part episode led to a spin-off series, NCIS: Los Angeles. A two-part episode during the eleventh season led to a second spin-off series, NCIS: New Orleans.
NCIC barely cracked the Top 30 in the first two seasons, while the third season showed progress, consistently ranking in the top 20. By its sixth season, NCIS became a top five hit, having remained there since. In 2011, the series was voted America’s favorite TV show in an online Harris Poll. The series finished its tenth season as the most-watched TV series in the U.S. during the 2012-13 network television season. NCIS was renewed for a seventeenth season on April 11, 2019, which premiered on September 24, 2019. Season 17 was supposed to have 24 episodes, but it was cut down to 20 since production was shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak.
NCIS follows a fictional elite team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service Major Case Response Team (MCRT) special agents based at the Washington, D.C. field office in Washington Navy Yard. In real life, the field office is based at the nearby Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, while the Navy Yard is home to the museum and several military commands within the Department of the Navy.
The NCIS is the primary law enforcement and counterintelligence arm of the United States Department of the Navy, which includes the United States Marine Corps. NCIS investigates all major criminal offenses (felonies) – for example, crimes punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice by confinement of more than one year – within the Department of the Navy.
Whenever a crime is committed involving Navy or Marine personnel, the Washington-based Major Case Response Team spearheads the investigation. The team, led by investigator Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), has included Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander), Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), Eleanor Bishop (Emily Wickersham), Alexandra Quinn (Jennifer Esposito), and Nicholas Torres (Wilmer Valderrama).
Over the course of the series, they are further assisted by allies both foreign and domestic, including Medical Examiners Dr. Donald Mallard (David McCallum), Dr. Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen), forensic specialists Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) and Kasie Hines (Diona Reasonover), British intelligence officer Clayton Reeves (Duane Henry), operational psychologist and senior special agent Dr. Jacqueline Sloane (Maria Bello), and successive NCIS Directors Tom Morrow (Alan Dale), Jennifer “Jenny” Shepard (Lauren Holly), and Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll).
