What is going on with NCIS‘ Jimmy Palmer? It seems that the show has toned down his involvement this season. –Sherry
Show boss Gary Glasberg reminds, “We’ve had this [storyline] runner that we started, about his personal life and his wanting to adopt. That’ll continue through the season,” ultimately leading to “an emotional bit of closure.”

I’m curious, will we see Tony’s apartment again soon on NCIS? –Cheryl

As a matter of fact, yes – in Episode 17, Glasberg says.

With the new team dynamic on NCIS, Tony really looks overqualified for his job. He’s been there forever. As part of his promised “growth” are we going to see him get a promotion? –Sandra
OK, so I brought to showrunner Gary Glasberg everyone’s concern about Tony’s “growth,” especially as Ziva’s exit grows farther and farther away. He avowed, “It’s really important to all of us — it’s important to me, it’s important to Michael Weatherly — that the character of Tony DiNozzo continues to grow.” But outgrowing Gibbs’ team likely will never be a part of that. “That’s something that we at one point or another talk about…. But at the end of the day, as I have learned from real agents that I’ve spoken to, once you find a team that you feel comfortable with, that’s just where you stay,” Glasberg explained. “You become a part of the family, and that’s just what it is.”

Question: Any scoop on what’s next for Tony on NCIS? –Laura
Ausiello:
If you’re among those concerned that DiNozzo will rush into a grand new romance, with Bishop’s pop culture-savvy NSA pal Sofia Martinez, you needn’t be. “I don’t think his next relationship is going to happen anytime soon,” show boss Gary Glasberg tells us. “Part of letting Tony be Tony and letting him be flirtatious and talk to women is that these women don’t really matter. They’re quick encounters that he’s having; it’s not Ziva. They’re not ones that count. Eventually, will there be another [great love]? Maybe.”

LOS ANGELES – The death of a friend will bring NCIS special agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) in contact with the head of the agency’s New Orleans office, providing the connection for a two-part episode that’s a tryout for another spinoff of TV’s top-rated series.

“The lead character that runs the New Orleans office is a friend of Gibbs from back in the days of” the Naval Investigative Service,” the law-enforcement agency’s earlier name, executive producer Gary Glasberg says. The victim, a friend of both men, was also an agent.

The two episodes, scheduled for March, could lead to a third NCIS series. NCIS: Los Angeles started as an episode of NCIS, which is set in Washington, D.C., and the two have become a Tuesday ratings powerhouse. NCIS: Los Angeles last year tried its own spinoff, NCIS: Red, but it was not picked up as a series. CBS will decide whether to go forward with this latest potential spinoff by mid-May.

Glasberg has finished writing the two scripts and is planning another trip to Louisiana to scout locations and do other preparatory work. Much of the filming will take place on the NCIS soundstages north of Los Angeles, but he expects to do four or five days of shooting in New Orleans.

“We’re going to try to highlight as much as we can, from the bayou all the way into the music clubs. The show is going to have a really significant music backbone. I really want to capture as much of the city as I can,” Glasberg said. “It’s such a rich backdrop that it almost becomes another character in the show.”

Harmon, who shares executive producing duties on the new project with Glasberg, will travel to New Orleans for filming, but Glasberg is not sure which other NCIS stars will go to the Crescent City for the spinoff episodes.

Casting has just started for the four main characters. Characters include Gibbs’ friend, an older, established agent with the last name of Pride who runs the New Orleans NCIS office. A casting description says he is “charismatic and full of life … but can be rock-solid and strong when needed.”

Glasberg says Pride “has two people under him, a woman from a different office in the Great Lakes who comes down temporarily, and a man working with him who’s from New Orleans, a former sheriff’s deputy turned NCIS agent,” and describes . their teasing relationship as similar to the one between the lead characters on Moonlighting.

The woman, whose last name is Brody, is “no-nonsense … a government-employee facade on an Ivy League mind (and) Grace Kelly-like in her class, pomp and circumstance,” while the man, whose last name is LaSalle, has “been through some rough times,” according to the casting description. The fourth character is an outspoken female medical examiner.

A retired NCIS agent who ran the New Orleans office for more than 20 years has been a great resource during preparation for the episodes, Glasberg says. “He has been very accessible to me and terrific to spend time with and it’s been great.” And besides having a unique character that makes it a desirable setting for a TV series, New Orleans makes sense in terms of its close connection to the military.

New Orleans “has its own sensibility, its own style, its own energy, and there’s a tremendous Navy and Marine presence there, all the way from Pensacola, (Fla.) around the Gulf (of Mexico) and into Texas.”

As for how much shooting would take place in Louisiana if the spinoff episodes led to a new series, Glasberg says, “That’s still kind of up in the air. But we would definitely do some significant filming there. It’s just a matter of how much.”

Who’s ready to meet the “missing” Mrs. Gibbs?

Having just recently had some on-screen fun with the fact that NCIS has never identified, let alone cast, Jethro’s second ex-wife, the CBS drama has a plan to fill in that conspicuous blank.

Speaking with TVLine at CBS’ Television Critics Association winter press tour cocktail party, showrunner Gary Glasberg shared, “I can promise you that [the mystery wife] is probably going to get touched on in Season 12″ — which, yes, has not officially been ordered, but come on.

Introducing that ex promises to be “[storyline] gold,” Glasberg effused. “I have a little tiny space on my Dry Erase board for stories for next season, and that’s already up there.”

Gibbs was first married to Shannon (played by Scandal‘s Darby Stanchfield), who,NCIS Gibbs Wives with their daughter, tragically died. Next, he wed Diane (Mad Men‘s Melinda McGraw), who is also Agent Fornell’s ex. And following his marriage to the yet-to-be-revealed “Redhead,” Gibbs traded vows with Stephanie (The West Wing‘s Kathleen York).

Of course, nary a month goes by where one NCIS viewer doesn’t email TVLine to ask if series star Mark Harmon’s real-life wife, actress Pam Dawber, will ever guest-star on TV’s most watched drama — perhaps even as Gibbs’ mystery missus.

“That’d be fun,” Glasberg acknowledges. “Every year someone says, ‘Maybe Pam will [be on the show],’ and every year it doesn’t happen.

“I have a feeling that’s a tall order,” he offered, “but it’s worth a phone call.”

NCIS is off until February. But Gary Glasberg is here to give us an in-depth look ahead.

NCIS Season 11 has been one of change, new directions and new faces.

And it could’ve all crashed and burned like a conspirator’s bomb.

Instead, the show has recovered well from the departure of Cote de Pablo’s Ziva and the impact that development had on core relationship of Ziva and Tony.

The addition of Emily Wickersham as Ellie Bishop has been a positiv thing mostly because she’s not so much as a replacement for Ziva as she is a new, interesting character for the NCIS team and the series itself. Bravo!

At the Television Critics Association press tour yesterday, I sat down with showrunner Gary Glasberg to talk over where we’re at in this season and where we’re heading, including why he and Mark Harmon may soon be spending time in New Orleans.

TV Fanatic: You guys have gone over this big hurdle with Ziva gone and it seems to be working really well.

Gary Glasberg: It’s kind of great. I’m fascinated by…Season 11 should be like you come in and put it on auto-pilot and it’s been anything but that. So to be hit with what we started with, which was Ziva’s departure, and then all the effort that went into finding Emily and creating Bishop…

I think that overall the response has been fantastic. There’ll always be a group of people who continue to really hold on, and I appreciate how connected they are to Ziva but I don’t think I could have asked for this transition to work any better, honestly.

TVF: The fact that you’re still bringing up Ziva’s name, how do you navigate when to stop doing that or when you don’t need to do it as much? Is there a gauge for that at all?

GG: I feel like, internally, we all feel like it’s necessary to move on. We recognize in life that people might comment or look back or say, ‘Ziva would have done this,’ or ‘Ziva would have done that.’ Is there an opportunity to do that? Yeah, once in a while. But I also feel like it’s a little bit of a mine field in that every time you revisit a character like that, it brings your existing cast back, and they’re not allowed to grow, and so it’s important for all of them to move on in a lot of ways.

There’s an interesting dynamic, a brother-sister sort of dynamic that’s there between Tony and Bishop. You know, the connection between Bishop and Gibbs, I think, is different than anything that he had with Ziva. We’re pleased with it. And off-camera, too, the chemistry and the support that Harmon and Weatherly and Pauley and the rest of the team have offered to Emily has been fantastic. And we’ll experiment and find things and continue to figure out who she is.

TVF: Will we get more personal stories with her and get to know her life outside of work?

GG: No, it’ll get there. We know that she’s married. We know that she’s from Oklahoma. I’d love to meet her parents at some point, or a parent. We know that she’s got a large family, a bunch of brothers. I’d love to meet them. I know that the husband, who’s also at the NSA, is a big part of who she is, and we’ll certainly touch on that at some point, but the beauty of NCIS is sort of doling it out in little bits and pieces and touching on it and then walking away from it for a while and coming back, so we’ll get there.

TVF: In regards to this week’s episode, our review brought up whether Tony flirting with Martinez was too soon, not because of Ziva but because of McGee’s story. Thoughts?

GG: It’s such a tightrope, and everyone responds to Tony differently. At some point, we have to let Tony be Tony. And part of his defense mechanism is flirtation. And so wherever he is psychologically, to look at a woman or comment to a woman or spend time with a woman may not be what you’re interpreting on the surface. There’s usually something else going on with him, it’s just the nature of who he is.

TVF: Is there more of Martinez coming?

GG: Right now, we don’t have anything written, but I think the consensus was that she was fun. So if the opportunity comes up and we can make a connection through a case, then I’d be happy to have her come back.

TVF: The whole Parsa story, that arc, is that going to be with us for a while or is that just kind of a contained arc?

GG: After [NCIS Season 11 Episode 13], there’s one more, and then it wraps itself up in a really significant, cool way and I’m about to go into the editing room and start working on that. I’m pleased with it. It was a fun sort of villain to launch at the beginning of the season. It’s not going to carry all the way through to the end, but we’ll certainly tie it up in a way that I think people will be satisfied with.

TVF: Will repercussions from the end of that arc, will we see that, moving forward? Does it have any kind of big impact?

GG: It absolutely affects Gibbs. It affects Bishop in a huge way. And of course, the repercussions of what happened between McGee and Delilah will continue further into the season.

TVF: What can you tell me about where we’re heading with Delilah and McGee and how her recovery will impact their relationship?

GG: Adding this to any relationship is a tremendous amount of weight on both of their shoulders. She has to figure out what her life is going to be like. He now has a relationship with someone who’s been through something tragic and is dealing with changes and who they are and how they’re going to move forward. I think it’s real and I think that they’ll come at issues and problems as they surface. I’m excited about it. I feel like it’s not something that you see on television very often. To have a disabled character will be unique for us, it will be a challenge but I think all the writers are willing to rise to the occasion and give it a shot.

TVF: I know she’s very busy, but Susanna Thompson, any more with her? She has such a nice chemistry with Mark.

GG: That worked out well, didn’t it? I’d love to have her come back. You know, it was funny. It had been so long. And we approached her, and I think she was a little hesitant, just wondering what it was that we were planning. And then when she saw the script and how we wanted to use her, she came and played and was excited, and it went great. She told us she had a fantastic time. So I think it would be fun to have her back again, but we’ll have to see when and where…I was very lucky in that because of the relationship between CBS and the CW, we were able to figure something out. But scheduling-wise, she would go shoot up there for a few days and then she’d come back to us. It was a little bit of a juggle.

TVF: I know over the years Gibbs has had different romantic things, whether it’s Jamie Lee Curtis or other people. Will Gibbs have any romance the rest of this season?

GG: This season, because of all of the change and the adjustment and the things that were being introduced, we didn’t feel like this was a season to sort of get him involved with someone, but it’s always a fun story arc, and Mark’s always game. It’ll happen again.

TVF: Where are you and Mark with the spin-off?

GG: I’ve written two episodes that will air sometime the end of March. Both scripts are written. I’m really excited about it. The characters are rich and fun and different, and it mixes the Washington with this New Orleans world in what I hope is a unique and different way. We haven’t cast yet. We’re just starting the process. There’s a lot of work to do. I’m going to go down there next week for a day or two. It’s all just beginning and ramping up, and people seem to be enthusiastic, and hopefully, we’ll come up with something good.

TVF: Can we expect all of our NCIS people to be in those episodes, or do you think you’ll give some of them a breather just because there will be new people coming in?

GG: The way that the scripts are structured, they don’t all go [to New Orleans], but they are all in the episodes. So there’s business going on in DC and then there’s business going on back there, and there’s a lot of inter-cutting that happens.

TVF: What does the rest of the season hold, including the 250th episode. Any guest stars to talk about?

GG: We’re in prep on the big DiNozzo senior 250th episode, so we’re excited about that. After that, I don’t think I have anybody really, guest-wise, lined up yet, but I know I’ve got some roles coming up that should be fun. And then also, the writing staff and I are about to sit down and start arcing out the final four episodes of the season.

So yeah, it’s a bit of a roller coaster ride from this point forward because I’ve got an episode that starts prepping Monday, and then right after that, we start prepping New Orleans. So there’s all the work that goes along with that. And then I come back from those two episodes, and then I think we have one or two episodes, and then we’ll launch right into our final arc. So it’s going to be an interesting run.

TVF: For the 250th, do you approach it as more of an homage to the 250 episodes or do you think of it as a way to kind of shift gears a little bit for whatever’s coming next?

GG: When we did Man Walks Into a Bar, that was really an homage and that was something we understood could be different and should be different. This is really just a really sort of a fun, traditional episode of the show. It’s a milestone. It’s a fantastic milestone. We’re happy with how things are going and want to keep it going. We figured bringing back Mr. Wagner was a fun nod to things, and he actually did the 150th. So yeah. So we figured, well, this is a good time to do it.

NCIS Season 11 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.

A second goldfish is nice and all, sure, but why isn’t NCIS‘ Tony keeping Ziva in his life in a more literal way, either through Skyping (on an encrypted line, of course) or any other technology available to him?

“A lot of people have approached me about the idea of not shutting the door entirely on [their staying in touch], and I’m not opposed to it,” showrunner Gary Glasberg told TVLine at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday, when we asked if the CBS drama might ever suggest that Tony (played by Michael Weatherly) is finding ways to communicate with his ex-colleague (former cast member Cote de Pablo). “But it has to be done in a way where it feels organic to the storytelling and we’re not just throwing in lines about Ziva here and there.”

For example, “If Tony’s in a personal relationship or there’s something significant happening for him and he wondered how she would respond, then maybe we can figure out a way to do it. It’s a valid issue to bring up.”

But anyone asking for “Tiva” to somehow live on, even off camera, and for Tony to grow as a person/agent, is in a way suggesting two mutually exclusive things.

“Every time we bring her up, for Michael [Weatherly] and for Tony, it pulls him back to being in that relationship again,” Glasberg explained. “So its a tricky balance.

“We’re as sensitive to him moving forward post-Ziva as the rest of the world is,” Glasberg also said, because doing so “gives him the opportunity to grow and try things and meet people and move on.”

Addressing NCIS‘ other hot topic, Glasberg said he is “really proud” of the decision to catch McGee’s new girlfriend Delilah (recurring player Margo Harshman) in a bomb blast, leaving her paralyzed.

“Sometimes I walk into the writers room and I say to them, ‘We’re going to do something,’ and they look at me like I have six heads, and one of those instances was I wanted this bomb to go off — similar to some of the tragic stories that I saw after the Boston marathon…. I remember seeing a piece about a bunch of [female victims] who had managed to start to pull their lives back together again, and I wanted to try to capture some of that on our show. “The intent is to show a really smart individual take control of her life and rise up after all she’s been through. We’re excited about the arc that character is going to face as someone in a wheelchair.”

Will Robert Vaughn ever make a guest appearance on NCIS, paired up with David McCullum? I’d love to see a Man from U.N.C.L.E. reunion. –Bill
As would many readers of/writers to my column. I asked show boss Gary Glabserg about such a reunion, and he said that while the idea has “never been formally presented,” it has “always been something that’s in the ether, but then never materializes. But it’s something worth talking about, that’s for sure.”

Absolutely loved NCIS “Kill Chain” and I’m so ready for the upcoming episode, “Double Back”. But is this going to be the token “McGee angst” episode for the season, or is this emotional fallout going to continue on? –Leilani

No, I am hearing that the “McGee angst” will not be 100 percent nipped in the bud in the very next episode.
