Premise

NCIS: New Orleans follows a fictional team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) agents stationed out of New Orleans, Louisiana. The NCIS office handles cases from the Mississippi River to the Texas Panhandle. Living and working out of his office, Special Agent Dwayne Cassius Pride (Scott Bakula) heads a small team of special agents consisting of Chris LaSalle (Lucas Black), Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan), Sonja Percy (Shalita Grant), and Patton Plame (Daryl Mitchell). LaSalle, a former police detective who was recruited by Pride from the New Orleans Police Department, is a ladies' man who lives and breathes law enforcement; Brody, a transfer from the NCIS Great Lakes field office, has worked as a Special Agent Afloat and is keen to leave her past behind as she moves to New Orleans; Percy is a former ATF Special Agent and the team's newest member; and Plame is a computer specialist. They are assisted by Dr. Loretta Wade (C. C. H. Pounder), a forensic pathologist and medical examiner, and Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich), a criminalist and forensic investigator assigned to the Jefferson Parish Medical Examiner's Office. FBI Special Agent Garlan (Vanessa Ferlito), a New Orleans native formerly assigned to Washington D.C., will bring her local knowledge to bear as she investigates the team.
