What do you do when you have the biggest show on television airing on your network? Renew it, of course.
And that’s exactly what US broadcaster CBS has done by ordering an 11th season of crime procedual NCIS for 2013/14.
The deal also renews the network’s contract with NCIS star and executive producer Mark Harmon.
In its tenth season this year, the show is averaging 21.48 million viewers.
Furthermore, it is sold to more than 200 territories around the world, including M6 in France, Rai2 in Italy, TV3 in Sweden, LaSexta in Spain, Network Ten in Australia and Sat1 in Germany.
Harmon, Gary Glasberg, Chas Floyd Johnson, Mark Horowitz, Shane Brennan, George Schenck, Frank Cardea and Donald P Bellisario executive produce NCIS for Belisarius Productions in association with CBS Television Studios.
NCIS currently has one spin-off on air, NCIS: Los Angeles, which will have its own spin-off piloted ahead of the fall 2013 season.
