NCIS is a show about the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. NCIS is set in Washington DC and takes place throughout the Capital Metro area and surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia. It is made and modeled from JAG, a show made by the same producer, Donald Bellisario.
NCIS is a CBS network show about a team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service of the U.S. Navy.
The concept and characters were initially introduced in a two-part episode of the CBS series JAG in the episodes Ice Queen and Meltdown. The show premiered on September 23, 2003 and is currently in its eleventh season.
In late May 2009, the series also introduced its future spin-off titled NCIS: Los Angeles with most of the Office of Special Project team members with the exception of Lara Macy being introduced during Episode:Legend (Part 1) and Episode:Legend (Part 2).
Leroy Jethro Gibbs Edit
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs is a former marine sniper/Gunnery Sergeant with the United States Marine Corps who is now the head of the NCIS Major Case Response Team in the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. He was once married to a woman named Shannon with the two having a young daughter they named Kelly but the marriage ended in tragedy as while Gibbs was serving in Desert Storm, a Mexican drug lord shot the NIS agent guarding Shannon and Kelly with both women dying in the crash caused by the agent's death. This left Gibbs devastated and he later headed to Mexico to exact his revenge against the drug lord which he did by killing the other man after shooting him through the head, unaware that the drug lord had two children. Gibbs later returned to the U.S and kept the crime concealed for nearly twenty years until it returned with a vengeance in May 2010.
After leaving the Marines with the rank of Gunnery Sergeant, Gibbs joined NCIS when it was known as NIS as a Junior Agent and was known by his boss as "probie", which his former boss still calls him. Gibbs then rose through the ranks until he gained full leadership of the Major Case Response Team which he holds to this day.
Anthony DiNozzo Edit
Anthony "Tony" DiNozzo is the Senior Agent on Gibbs's team. He was a homicide detective in Baltimore before he joined NCIS due to the fact that his partner in Baltimore was corrupt. He has a bad record with women and is a lover of movies, as some of the more pivotal features of his character is his frequent referencing to quotes from favorite movies that are somehow involved with their cases, bad dating experiences and humorous quarrels about women with Kate and then Ziva. His childish humor has made him the target of Gibbs's head-slaps on more than one occasion and DiNozzo is not above dishing out some of his own, particularly to the younger, less experienced Agents of the team. He even likes to pull rank over his colleagues although this often works against him.

Ziva remained as the Mossad liaison until her return to Israel and Mossad at the conclusion of the sixth season following the death of her Mossad partner, Michael Rivkin at DiNozzo's hands.
Upon her return to Israel, Director David assigned her the task of assassinating Saleem Ulman but, she was captured and held prisoner until she was liberated by a team led by Gibbs. After her rescue Ziva resigned from Mossad and subsequently joined NCIS as an agent. Once her application was approved, Ziva replaced McGee as the "Probie" and at the start of Season 9, is promoted to full-time Field Agent.
In Season 10, Ziva was devastated when her estranged father, Eli David died after being hit by machine gunfire. She became obsessed with having revenge on Ilan Bodnar for killing her father. She eventually achieves her revenge. She leave the team in the second episode of the 11th season. Agent Ellie Bishop from NSA takes her place.
