In this spinoff of the original NCIS, a different team of Navy investigators tries to solve crimes in California. The special powers of this team include an agent who can infiltrate, chameleon-like, any criminal underworld, and another who is a master of all sorts of high-tech surveillance gadgets.

In the crime thriller franchise NCIS, a team of US Navy crime scene investigators uses their technical skills to identify and track down criminals. The teams is led by a no-nonsense-tough-guy boss. His crew is made up of lovably quirky characters with improbable skills. This version of the premise differs from the original in that this one is set in Los Angeles.

This series follows the well established formula of the modern crime-procedural drama, in which a team of investigative professionals works together to solve murders based on evidence left behind at the crime scene. Each team member has unique skills, and all their skills mesh to get the job. The drama of the series revolves around both the crime and the interaction of the team members.

While far from realistic, the series has been compelling enough to draw huge audiences and spawn numerous spinoffs. The original version began airing in 2003 and had run for 17 seasons as of 2020. An eighteenth season is planned for 2021. The series' longevity makes it the second longest running current scripted drama series after Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. The first spin off debuted after the parent series' sixth season. The second spin off debuted after the parent series' eleventh season.
