As you might have guessed, NCIS: Los Angeles is a spinoff of the globally successful NCIS series and stars Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J, and focusses on the high-stakes world of the Office of Special Projects (OSP) in Los Angeles.
Special Agent G. Callen (O’Donnell) leads an elite team of undercover operatives as they battle enemies both foreign and domestic under the watchful eye of Operational Manager Henrietta “Hetty” Lange (Linda Hunt). The team is composed of Agent Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), a hand-to-hand combat specialist and forensic whiz; Sam Hanna (LL Cool J), a former Navy Seal; and G's partner and technical analyst, Eric Beale (Barrett Foa).
Over the course of the series, the team is assisted by allies from both NCIS and its local counterparts, including LAPD liaison officer Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen), Intelligence Analyst Nell Jones (Renée Felice Smith), Operational Psychologist Nate Getz (Peter Cambor), and rookie field agent Dominic Vail (Adam Jamal Craig); all of whom work side-by-side with NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger (Miguel Ferrer), a laconic agent and skilled bureaucrat.
Season 1 sees the team race to solve a kidnapping case, investigate the murder of a drug dealer with a personal link to Hanna, search for a former Marine who’s the lead suspect in the murder of an Iraqi businessman, and many more action packed cases.
NCIS: Los Angeles begins 11th July at 6pm on CBS Action.
