NCIS: RED Details Revealed by Shane Brennan
TV Guide’s Chris Willman got to take a First Look at NCIS: RED on March 5th, 2013 when he talked to Shane Brennan. Willman pointed out that some people don’t see any reason for another NCIS spin-off. NCIS and NCIS:Los Angeles fans are divided on the issue, as I have learned through social media in the last month. Personally I can’t get enough NCIS and with the casting choices that have been made, I smell a winning combination. Hearing it straight from Shane Brennan, the creator himself, makes it all clear. The question of how the team would live; what the Mobile unit looks like and what some agents’ last names are has been a topic of Twitter.
Here we have a few more insights into NCIS: RED from Shane Brennan:
Here’s how: The action follows a mobile military crime-solving unit, the Red team, led by Paris Summerskill (Grey’s Anatomy alum Kim Raver), who shares a mysterious past with analyst Roy Haines (Sex and the City’s John Corbett).
Brennan says the new show, which may be called NCIS: Red, will track the team’s overlapping personal and professional lives. “They work and live together 24/7″ — on two trucks nicknamed Laverne and Shirley — “so they sit around a dinner table, arguing about elements of the case and who kept everyone awake last night snoring.”
So, the reports I had on John Corbett playing Roy Quaid have changed to “Haines” and we finally have Paris’ last name! I found out from a superfan on Twitter, @DylanJames18, that Gillian Alexy will play Claire Keats; he actually zoomed in on the Script photo to find her last name for us. We are still hoping someone will leak Dave’s last name, but two out of three ain’t bad!
NCIS: Los Angeles ratings has been growing at a steady pace, with their March 5th episode, directed by Chris O’Donnell sending the ratings higher than ever. Fans who wonder why we need another NCIS spin-off, and whether the new show means doom for the franchise have nothing to worry about.
