NCIS: New Orleans (2014–)
This third installment of the NCIS (naval criminal investigative service) series entrenches us deep in New Orleans culture. Scott Bakula stars as Dwayne Cassius "King" Pride, the agent in charge of the New Orleans field office. He's a nola native who shows this off with creole cooking and jazz piano playing. Veteran team member, Senior Special Agent Christopher LaSalle, is played by Lucas Black. A former member of vice, Lasalle is laid back and charismatic. Zoe McLellan plays Meredith "Merri" Brody, the newest member of the team, a recent transfer from Detroit, with a background in interrogation. Rounding out the cast are CCH Pounder as Orleans Parish medical examiner Dr. Loretta Wade and her lab assistant Sebastian Lund played by Rob Kerkovich.
