TNT Acquires Off-Network Rights to ‘NCIS: New Orleans’

'NCIS' Spin-Off Remains the Top Rated Program in the Tuesday 10 p.m. ET Hour on CBS

“NCIS: New Orleans,” now in season four on CBS, is also now airing in off-network on TNT. The cable network has the rights to the first three seasons of the “NCIS” spin-off starring Scott Bakula and each subsequent season after the drama has aired on CBS Network.

Debuting on Sept. 23, 2014, “NCIS: New Orleans” focuses on the local Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) field office that inquires into cases involving military personnel in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence. Leading the team is Special Agent Dwayne Pride, a.k.a. “King” (Bakula), a native of New Orleans who is driven by his need to do what is right. This colorful city harbors a dark side and is a magnet for service personnel on leave. But when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Pride’s team is at its best.
