Press Release back to list


NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is an action drama, about a team of special agents whose mission is to investigate any crime that has a shred of evidence connected to Navy and Marine Corps personnel, regardless of rank or position. Leading this team that operates outside of the military chain of command is NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a highly skilled investigator and interrogator who is smart, tough and willing to bend the rules to get the job done. Working under Gibbs is Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo, a former homicide detective who has instincts that come only from working on the streets. Joining them are Agent Katie Todd, a beautiful yet tough former Secret Service agent who's gone head to head with Gibbs in the past, and forensics specialist Abby Sciuto, a gifted scientist whose dark wit matches her goth-style hair and clothes. New to the team is Special Agent Timothy McGee, a graduate of MIT whose computer skills earned him a spot on Gibb's team as a probationary field agent. Assisting the team is medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard, who knows it all because he's seen it all. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents travel the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.
