Although its parent series is currently in its 29th season, will CBS find the same sort of success with its new offering, 48 Hours: NCIS? The true crime program has the potential to attract fans of not just the 48 Hours TV show, but also the Tiffany Network’s scripted NCIS TV series franchise. Will 48 Hours: NCIS be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
The 48 Hours: NCIS TV show centers on true crime cases handled by the real U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Rocky Carroll narrates the CBS TV news magazine, which features actual NCIS agents sharing the investigation techniques they use in cases including murder, fraud, and terrorism. The series delves into the sorts of real cases that have inspired the NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, and NCIS: New Orleans — ones the agents will never forget.
