Two former stars of the long-running CBS drama series “NCIS” will executive produce a new cop drama that’s in development at the network. Variety reports that Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo are attached to the project.
“Titled ‘MIA,’ the series follows a newly minted homicide detective who is assigned to an experienced, by-the-book partner to solve cases in Miami. She struggles to keep the personal entanglements of her final undercover assignment from jeopardizing her future,” Variety reports.
The project comes from writer and executive producer Shepard Boucher, whose previous credits include “Riverdale,” “Angie Tribeca,” and “Undateable,” Variety notes.
“Weatherly and de Pablo will executive produce, with CBS Television Studios producing. Weatherly is currently under an overall deal at the studio,” Variety adds.
