BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Mark Harmon is getting busier.
The actor’s character of Gibbs will appear on the latest “NCIS” spinoff based in New Orleans, which begins shooting next week in the Crescent City.
Tuesday, Sept. 23: The season premiere of NCIS (8:00-9:00 PM) leads into the series premiere of its new spinoff, NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (9:00-10:00 PM), and PERSON OF INTEREST (10:00-11:00 PM).
Now, the network plans to film its new series on location, in and around New Orleans.
“I’m thrilled from a business standpoint that the tax credit exists,” said Gary Glasberg, creator and executive producer of “NCIS: New Orleans.” But Glasberg said he was more excited about the prospect of filming in and around the city.
“I can’t replicate New Orleans and do it as well as I want,” Glasberg explained. “It’s such a unique part of the world that I feel very fortunate that we can film this there. Everything will be done in Louisiana.”
This fall’s new series will cover 13 episodes, Glasberg said. If successful, he said, the series will continue.
