Re: Scott Bakula joins NCIS New Orleans set spinoff

I'm not a big fan of LA, but I think with this cast and the popularity of the franchise, the new NCIS will easily slot into the top 5 shows on TV.

Re: Scott Bakula joins NCIS New Orleans set spinoff

Speaking of spinoffs, does anyone know if there ever really was a consideration to do a CSI: London (with its resident Who theme song being "Eminence Front"), or was that only a rumor?

CSI: London didn't happen because the popularity of the franchise was dying down but the cost would have been too much. It's hard to fake London.

I'd already thought of a UK spinoff.

A bunch of scruffy oiks get off a bus and arrive at the crime scene, climb into cheap tracksuits. As they turn away from the camera you see CSI handwritten on the back of the tracksuit.

'Can't Explain' by The Who plays as the credits roll...

Eric Christian Olsen's lustrous locks would like a word with you:


*Sigh* And here I was hoping that Bakula would get a haircut!

My guess is LaSalle will be a stereotypical laid back, smooth-talking Cajun man with a disregard for the rules.

And they couldn't have, you know...filmed IN London?

I mean, 24 seems to be doing okay in that regard.

I know you are a Yankee fan, so clearly not everything lines up in the brain but...

COST

They couldn't film it in London, having 200 person crew in London would have been to expensive, they couldn't fake London so they just called it quits. At one point I think they were looking to have only 2-3 people actually be in London, film a bunch of the death scenes and such and film the rest in the USA or Canada, but they realized how stupid that would be.

I'm happy for Bakula, but don't think I'll watch. I like the original NCIS, but don't even watch NCIS: LA. Well, I guess if they add other interesting people to the cast then perhaps I'll watch.
I too really iust watch the original NCIS never really got in to NCIS: LA, sure I've seen the odd episode.

You clearly haven't seem him lately. Hair is quite short and natural coloured. (Greying brown hair) He looks quite distinguished.
Also, the show is being called a spinoff, but is in fact going to be a two-parter special episode of the original NCIS. They will be testing the water to see if it has the legs for a stand-alone series. I do hope it does.

Bakula speaking in a Cajun accent is going to take some getting used to...

Didn't they start NCIS in a similar way through a 2 parter on JAG where the character played by David James Elliot's wife was found under ice?

Re: Scott Bakula joins NCIS New Orleans set spinoff

Yes. Both NCIS series as well as both of the CSI spinoffs were backdoor pilots produced as episodes of other series before they were given series orders.

  • While the New Orleans office will be in New Orleans, they will handle cases and situations from the Texas Pan Handle through Florida. So it is presumably not going to be all New Orleans all the time.

Yep. It would be great to see an episode that takes place here in Pensacola, even if it isn't filmed here (though it would be awesome if they would).


Awesome. I love CCH Pounder.

I highly doubt Bakula's character will have a Cajun accent. LaSalle is the only character who's been consistently described as a Louisiana native. Based on that and the last name I'm expecting him to be Cajun, but that's obviously not guaranteed.
