CBS Orders ’48 Hours: NCIS’

'NCIS' Franchise Expands into '48 Hours"

CBS News will launch “48 Hours: NCIS,” a new six-part series that will give viewers access to some of the biggest cases handled by the real-life Naval Criminal Investigative Service, on Tuesday, April 25 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. The logline: “48 Hours: NCIS” will introduce viewers to the agents that have worked on some of the agency’s most significant investigations, who reveal, step-by-step, how they track killers, crack fraud cases, and how they hunt terrorists using street smarts and technology. Narrated by Rocky Carroll, star of “NCIS,” the new series will explore the kinds of difficult cases that have inspired “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “NCIS: New Orleans.”

“The range of the real-life NCIS missions is quite extraordinary,”
said Senior Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky. “Those missions featured in “48 Hours: NCIS” will be told by those who know the cases best – the agents and in their own words. Viewers will also experience the wide range of emotions the agents feel when working these cases. They told us that ‘every crime is a tragedy. It involves parents, sisters, brothers, husbands…we work for them too. We feel it very personally.’”
