America comes to the Big Easy to party, but the crimes can turn deadly serious. That's where the elite unit of 'NCIS: New Orleans' comes into play. As special agent-in-charge, Dwayne Cassius "King" Pride (Scott Bakula) is responsible for cracking cases threatening American security or involving military personnel. His hand-picked unit includes streetwise former NOPD detective Christopher Lasalle (Lucas Black), ultra-dedicated agent Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan), and their newest recruit, former undercover ATF agent Sonja Percy (Shalita Grant). While the investigators are on the scene, the evidence gets handled by the technical experts back at headquarters, including offbeat forensics scientist Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich), unstoppable hacker Patton Plame (Daryl "Chill" Mitchell) and seasoned Medical Examiner Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder). From black market drones, to deadly new drugs, to a lethal home invasion, no situation is too extreme in the 24 thrill-packed episodes.
