TNT Acquires NCIS: New Orleans; Chicago P.D. Heads to Syndication in Fall 2018

NCIS: New Orelans

CBS Corporation announced that one of broadcast television's top dramas, NCIS: New Orleans, is airing on TNT, which has acquired off-network cable rights to the series. NCIS: New Orleans premiered on TNT in early December. TNT has the rights to the first three seasons of the acclaimed drama starring Scott Bakula and each subsequent season after the drama has aired on CBS Network. The drama focuses on the local Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) field office that inquires into cases involving military personnel in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence. Leading the team is Special Agent Dwayne Pride, a.k.a. "King" (Bakula), a native of New Orleans who is driven by his need to do what is right. This colorful city harbors a dark side and is a magnet for service personnel on leave. But when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Pride's team is at its best.


Chicago P.D.

NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution has sold Chicago P.D. to FOX Television Stations. The show will air Monday-Friday in national syndication beginning September 2018. The hit, one-hour dramatic television series is Dick Wolf's second installment in the Chicago franchise. Chicago P.D. is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's elite Intelligence Unit. The Intelligence Unit combats the city's most heinous offenses: organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond. Chicago P.D. is set to air Monday-Friday on local broadcast stations including FOX owned and operated stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington D.C., Houston, Phoenix, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Orlando and Charlotte, among many others.
