Olivia Swann and Todd Lasance will play the leaders of an eclectic team of US NCIS agents and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in NCIS: Sydney, as filming continues in the harbour city.
Swann takes on the role of NCIS Special Agent Michelle Mackey in the series, while Lasance is her 2IC AFP counterpart, Sergeant Jim “JD” Dempsey.
They are joined by Sean Sagar as NCIS Special Agent, DeShawn Jackson; Tuuli Narkle as AFP Liaison Officer, Constable Evie Cooper; Mavournee Hazel as AFP forensic scientist, Bluebird ‘Blue’ Gleeson, and William McInnes as AFP forensic pathologist, Dr Roy Penrose.
The episodes will follow the multi-national taskforce as they strive to keep naval crimes in check, in the most contested patch of ocean on the planet.
Produced by Endemol Shine Australia for CBS Studios and Paramount ANZ, NCIS: Sydney is the first iteration of the franchise to be based outside the US.
While Paramount ANZ has so far declined to name the creatives involved in the series, director Shawn Seet was captured in paparazzi photos of the shoot last month.
