NCIS stars Mark Harmon (Chicago Hope, Summer School, Freaky Friday) as Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, a former Marine gunnery sergeant, whose skills as an investigator are unmatched.  Gibbs leads an eccentric team who investigate crimes stemming from murder and espionage, to terrorism and stolen submarines.  Co-stars Michael Weatherly (“Dark Angel”), Sasha Alexander (Mission Impossible: III, “Presidio Med”) and David McCallum (“The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”) are joined by an all-star guest line-up including Terry O’Quinn (“Lost”), Sherilynn Fenn (“Twin Peaks”), Adam Baldwin (Serenity) and Doug Savant (“Desperate Housewives”) for 23 thrilling episodes centering on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations.  A riveting drama series, this collectible six-disc set featuring exclusive bonus features and commentary is available for the suggested retail price of $68.99 U.S./$74.99 Canada.

Synopsis:
This powerful series is about a team of special agents, operating outside the military chain of command, whose mission is to investigate any crime that has a shred of evidence connected to the Navy and Marine Corps personnel, regardless of rank or position.  Leading this team is NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Harmon), a highly skilled investigator and interrogator who is smart, tough and willing to bend the rules just to get the job done.  

Working under Gibbs is Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo (Weatherly), a former homicide detective who has instincts that come only from working on the streets;
Agent Kate Todd (Alexander), a beautiful former Secret Service agent who has gone head to head with Gibbs in the past; and forensics specialist Abby Scuito (Pauley Perrette), a gifted scientist whose dark wit matches her Goth-style hair and clothes.  Assisting the team is medical examiner Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard (David McCallum), who knows it all because he’s seen it all.  Whether investigating murder or espionage, the NCIS team goes global in their quest to solve  crimes connected to the Navy or Marine Corps.
