The #1 drama on U.S. television for the last four years and the #1 program overall this 2013-2014 season[1], NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humor, it's a show that focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations. NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) leads this troupe of colorful personalities. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), NSA Analyst Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop (Emily Wickersham), forensic specialist Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), Medical Examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum), and Assistant Medical Examiner Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen). Overseeing the operations is NCIS Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll). From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents investigate all crimes with U.S. Navy or Marine Corps ties.

NCIS is produced by Belisarius Productions in association with CBS Television Studios. Executive Producers are Gary Glasberg, Chas. Floyd Johnson, Mark Horowitz, Mark Harmon, Frank Cardea, George Schenck, Steven D. Binder, Scott Williams, Shane Brennan and Donald P. Bellisario. The series is distributed internationally by CBS Studios International.
