NCIS: Sydney AWG President Statement

16 February, 2022

CBS Studios’ announcement today that Paramount+ will bring the NCIS franchise to Australia is a massive vote of confidence in the Australian industry. It means writers, directors, actors and crew will have the opportunity to showcase their talent producing an Australian version of a franchise that is recognised around the world.

The series will have a uniquely Australian feel but will deliver all the drama and thrills of this franchise against the backdrop of our most recognised and iconic city.

CBS Studios and Paramount+’s decision adds to Australia’s burgeoning reputation as being the place to make cost effective, high quality, writer-driven drama for a worldwide audience.
