NCIS News: Tony and Ziva Are Getting Their Own Series, Set in Paris, on Paramount Plus


last week’s appearance by Michael Weatherly on “NCIS” wasn’t an accident.

Weatherly and Cote de Pablo have signed up for an NCIS spin off series on Paramont Plus. It will be set in Paris. The actors will be playing Ziva David and Tony DiNozzo, star crossed lovers who’ve never quite gotten it together on the main show.

Cote de Pablo left the show in 2013, but residuals only last so long. It’s time to pay the mortgage. Weatherly left in 2015 and then had six seasons as CBS’s “Bull.”

In the story, the two left for Paris with their daughter, who I guess is ten years old and can be kidnapped for various plots.

According to CBS: “When Tony’s security company is attacked, they must go on the run across Europe, try to figure out who is after them and maybe even learn to trust each other again so that they can finally have their unconventional happily ever after.”

Paramount Plus obviously is into resurrecting old TV ideas that they own. They just renewed “Frasier” 2.0 for a second run. They should really order a new iteration of CBS’s “Knots Landing.” And there’s always “My Favorite Martian.”
