“Two-Parter Lets Fans Meet New NCIS Team”
Things also heating up for Tony, Ziva

As an NCIS fan, LL Cool J knows what needs to be retained for a spinoff to succeed.
“The chemistry between the characters is incredible: the banter, the way they’ve developed over the years,” says the rapper/actor. “That is probably the best thing about the show.”
Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J and the rest of the NCIS Office of Special Projects (OSP) team will get their chance to impress viewers in two episodes.
LL Cool J says it was great to work with Harmon, and he appreciates this opportunity. “I let him know I respect the franchise and want to do it justice. I don’t want to be the one to wreck it.”
The spinoff, whose title will be revealed if and when CBS announces a fall pickup next month, also features a tight- knit NCIS team, but it spends more time undercover on national security, including terrorism.
The episodes highlight the units’ differences: The murder of a Marine, the kind of case the original investigates, evolves into an attempt to thwart a security threat, the specialty of the OSP.
NCIS’s Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and McGee (Sean Murray) head to Los Angeles to team with OSP’s G. Callen (O’Donnell) and Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) to investigate.
