Star Trek: Enterprise lead, Scott Bakula is set to star in a new NCIS spinoff set in New Orleans. Bakula will play NCIS Special Agent Pride, a man who “embodies New Orleans,” according to EW.
“The NCIS New Orleans office handles cases from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle. New Orleans with its rich setting of music, fun and debauchery is a magnet for military personnel on-leave. And with fun comes trouble. It is a natural backdrop for a unique character driven spin-off.”
The pilot episode will air as a two-part NCIS special this spring.
