TV show description:
This NCIS spin-off represents a special division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Office of Special Projects (OSP). The Los Angeles-based team targets dangerous and elusive criminals that pose a threat to the country’s security. They assume false identities and utilize the most advance technology available to go deep undercover and put their lives on the line in the process.
Agent G. Callen (Chris O’Donnell) is the lead agent on the team and his natural talent for doing undercover work is legendary. He can be a bit of a chameleon. His partner is Special Agent Sam Hanna (LL Cool J), an ex-U.S. Navy SEAL who’s seen action in both Afghanistan and Iraq. From this experience, Hanna has a great knowledge of Arabic and makes him an expert on Middle-Eastern culture. He’s also a surveillance expert who uses state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to help feed crucial information to his comrades.
Callen and Hanna are assisted by a top-notch group. Special Agent Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) is the very bright daughter of a slain Marine. She lives for the rush that comes with undercover work. Operational Psychologist Nate Getz (Peter Cambor) is an expert at getting in everybody’s head, to profile the target and monitor agents’ states of mind before, during, and after their missions.
Dominic Vail (Adam Jamal Craig) is the most most recent and very qualified addition to the team but lacks practical experience. Henrietta “Hetty” Lange (Linda Hunt) oversees the backroom support staff who is charged with providing everything from micro-surveillance cameras to cars on demand.
