NCIS is an American police procedural drama television series, revolving around a fictional team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which conducts criminal investigations involving the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The show is set in Washington D.C. and takes place throughout the Capital Metro area and surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia with some cases even taking place overseas in Afghanistan or Iraq although in real life, the NCIS series is in fact filmed in or around Los Angeles. Six months later, in September 23rd, 2003, NCIS premiered as a solo series with its series premiere episode, Yankee White (episode). Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill served as NCIS's creators and executive producers, the two men also responsible for creating and producing JAG. Five or six months later in September 2003, the first ever NCIS solo episode, "Yankee White" and was originally referred to as Navy NCIS during season one; "Navy" was later dropped from the title, resulting in it being named "NCIS". On April and May 2009, "Legend Part 1" and "Legend Part 2" both aired as part of NCIS Season 6. These two backdoor pilot episodes later triggered the first ever NCIS spin-off series titled "NCIS: Los Angeles" starring Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J with NCIS: Los Angeles currently in its seventh season.
