Star World focusses on crime with new show 'NCIS'

MUMBAI: English general entertainment channel Star World will air the show NCIS from 28 July at 9 pm.

The show deals with the inner workings of the government agency that investigates all crimes involving Navy and Marine Corps personnel, regardless of rank or position. Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humour the show that focusses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.

Leading the troupe is NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), a former Marine gunnery sergeant, whose skills as an investigator are unmatched. Gibbs is a man of few words, who only needs a look to explain it all. Working under Gibbs is Special Agent Anthony Dinozzo (Michael Weatherly), an ex-homicide detective who may come off as the world's oldest frat boy, but whose instincts in the field are unparalleled.

Joining them are forensic specialist Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), a talented scientist whose dark wit matches her Goth style and eclectic tastes, and NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate whose brilliance with computers far overshadows his insecurities in the field. Assisting the team is medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum), who knows it all because he's seen it all, and he's not afraid to let you know.

Internally, the NCIS team will have to band together and recover after the devastating loss of Special Agent Kate Todd at the hands of a terrorist. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents travel the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy and Marine Corps ties.

The first episode deals with the investigation of a Secret Service agent's death aboard Air Force One leads Gibbs and the others to uncover a terrorist's scheme, and partners them up with another Secret Service agent, Kate Todd - who may have longer ties with NCIS than any of them foresee.
