We are so excited that the immensely popular NCIS mega-franchise has announced it’s coming to Sydney. ‘NCIS: Sydney’ will be the first of the franchise spin-offs to be set outside the U.S. Previous spin-offs such as ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ and ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ have been shown in over 200 international markets.
Launching exclusively on Paramount+ and Network 10 in Australia and internationally on Paramount+ in 2023, the original series will feature local stories and will also include the talents of Shane Brennan, the Aussie who created ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’.
As reported in IF Magazine, Brennan said the announcement reflected a “massive vote of confidence” in the Australian industry.
“It means writers, directors, actors, and crew will have the opportunity to showcase their talent producing an Australian version of a franchise that is recognised around the world,” he said.
“The series will have a uniquely Australian feel but will deliver all the drama and thrills of this franchise against the backdrop of our most recognised and iconic city.
“CBS Studios and Paramount+’s decision adds to Australia’s burgeoning reputation as being the place to make cost eﬀective, high quality, writer-driven drama for a worldwide audience.”
Production is set to start this year, cast announcements have yet to be made. Watch this space!!
