CBS' 'NCIS' Spinoff Adds 'Person of Interest's' Paige Turco
The planted spinoff has cast Person of Interest's Paige Turco as Linda, the wife to Bakula's lead Agent Pride, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Set to air in the spring, the two-part planted pilot centers on the NCIS New Orleans office, which handles cases from Pensacola, Fla., through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle. New Orleans, with its rich culture of music, fun and debauchery is a magnet for military personnel on leave -- and with fun, comes trouble.
Turco, who has a series regular role on The CW's midseason drama The 100, will film the NCIS guest role in second position and potentially recur should the spinoff move forward.
NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg and star Mark Harmon will executive produce the spinoff.
