TV's most watched drama has confirmed that a spin-off series will be happening in The Big Easy.

The pilot episode is set to air in the spring of 2014 on CBS and could potentially be showing regularly by the fall. With Cote De Pablo's character Ziva leaving the show, there is a lot of change happening in the world of NCIS.

Producer Gary Glasberg presented NCIS star Mark Harmon with the idea of doing a few episodes in New Orleans and was surprised when Harmon responded with the idea of a sweeps episode. 

A major push behind the new show is that New Orleans would be able to support a whole new range of plots and events.
