NCIS season 12, episode 1: Twenty Klicks airs tonight on CBS.
Gibbs and McGee travel to Russia to safely escort home an NCIS computer engineer connected to classified intel, but their mission is compromised and they are forced to go off the grid while hunted by a Russian mercenary group. Meanwhile, the team in D.C. frantically uses every asset and inter-agency contact they have in an attempt to locate their missing team members.
“NCIS” is based on the cases of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, special agents traverse the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties. With liberal doses of humor, the show focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.
The agents include special agent Anthony DiNozzo, an ex-homicide detective; special agent Ziva David, probably the most dangerous team member; and special agent Timothy McGee, an MIT graduate with a genius talent in the computer field. Forensic specialist Abby Sciuto also assists the team along with medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard. Head of operations is NCIS director Leon Vance, who is an intelligent and highly trained agent.
NCIS season 12, episode 1 airs Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS. Spoiler video below:
