      (Episode name TBD) – Surrounded by the city’s soulful music and luscious food, Pride and his New Orleans NCIS team investigate a murder case with ties to the military. Meanwhile, Brody acclimates to life in the Big Easy with a little help from her coworkers, on the series premiere of NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, Tuesday, Sept. 23 (9:00-10:00, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

      NCIS: NEW ORLEANS is a drama about the local field office that investigates criminal cases affecting military personnel in the Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence. Leading the team is Special Agent Dwayne, aka “King,” a native of New Orleans who is driven by his need to do what is right.  Working with Pride is Special Agent Christopher LaSalle, who plays hard but works harder, and Special Agent Meredith “Merri” Brody, a charismatic and tough interrogator who transferred from the Great Lakes office in search of a fresh start. Supporting them is coroner Dr. Loretta Wade, who is as eccentric as she is smart.  This colorful city that harbors a dark side is a magnet for service personnel on leave, and when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Pride’s team is at its best.
