A new NCIS show has started filming its first season in Australia.
NCIS: Sydney is an Australian take on the most-watched drama on broadcast television in the States.
Using local cast and crew members, filming for the series will all take place in Australia.
Network 10 and Paramount+ Australia will carry the show when it debuts.
And this endeavor by CBS Studios could show whether or not properties in the United States will work overseas.
If NCIS: Sydney becomes a hit, it could open doors for NCIS shows in more countries.
Filming begins on Season 1 of NCIS: Sydney
A segment on 9 News Australia showed the crew filming scenes in the Sydney Harbour.
According to the broadcast, the Australian military was conducting a training exercise, and the show will use some of that footage during an upcoming episode.
The cast and crew were also in North Bondi to film for the inaugural season.
For now, NCIS: Sydney is being filmed for an Australian audience.
But once the episodes have aired in Australia, they will become available on Paramount+ in the United States.
It means that NCIS fans will get to check out this new show later on.
And if the ongoing Writers Strike takes a long time, NCIS: Sydney might be the next scripted drama that fans in the U.S. get to watch.
A picture of two NCIS: Sydney cast members was also leaked online. It is featured below.
More information is expected to come out as the show gets farther into filming.
