NCIS: Sydney on Paramount+ – Paramount+ Australia today released the key art and new-look trailer set to the iconic soundtrack of INXS’s hit song Kick, for the highly-anticipated original series NCIS: SYDNEY.
The eight-episode debut season will stream exclusively on Paramount+ Australia from Friday, 10 November, dropping new episodes weekly on a Friday.
Filmed against the spectacular backdrop of one of the world’s most breathtaking harbour cities, NCIS: SYDNEY is the first-ever international series from the global NCIS franchise outside of the US, and sees rising international tensions in the Indo-Pacific. The brilliant and eclectic team of U.S. NCIS Agents and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) are grafted into a multi-national taskforce, to keep naval crimes in check, in the most contested patch of ocean on the planet.
The NCIS: SYDNEY team will be led by NCIS Special Agent Michelle Mackey played by Olivia Swann (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The River Wild) and her 2IC AFP counterpart, Sergeant Jim “JD” Dempsey played by Todd Lasance (Without Remorse, Spartacus: War of the Damned). They are joined by Sean Sagar (The Covenant, Mea Culpa) as NCIS Special Agent, DeShawn Jackson; Tuuli Narkle (Mystery Road: Origin, Bad Behaviour) as AFP Liaison Officer, Constable Evie Cooper; Mavournee Hazel (Shantaram, Halifax: Retribution) as AFP Forensic Scientist, Bluebird ‘Blue’ Gleeson and William McInnes (The Newsreader, Total Control) as AFP Forensic Pathologist, Dr Roy Penrose.
Produced by Endemol Shine Australia for CBS Studios and Paramount Australia, and distributed outside Australia by Paramount Global Content Distribution, NCIS: SYDNEY is created by Morgan O’Neill (Les Norton), who also serves as executive producer alongside Endemol Shine Australia’s Sara Richardson(RFDS) and Sue Seeary (Ten Pound Poms), with Michele Bennett(Mr Inbetween) as producer.
NCIS: SYDNEY will premiere in the U.S. on Tuesday 14 November on The CBS Television Network, with additional Paramount+ markets to follow.
