It's become readily apparent that the Awesom-O robot from South Park is running the television department over at CBS as the network announced that it has started work on another NCIS spinoff. Network executives reportedly got drunk on 32-year-old Macallan, blindfolded each other, and spent the better part of 90 minutes throwing darts at a map before settling on New Orleans as a location for the totally original series. Just kidding. But, really...

CBS is planning another “NCIS” spinoff, Variety has confirmed. It will center around the Naval Criminal Investigative Service‘s New Orleans office. The city, with its debauchery and party scene, is a magnet for military personnel on leave and the trouble that comes with all the off-duty fun.

The spinoff, to be planted in two “NCIS” episodes slated to air in the spring, will be exec produced by “NCIS” exec producers Mark Harmon and Gary Glasberg. [Variety]

All that's left for the network to do is have someone reach into a hat and pull out the name of a washed-up rapper to play the hard-ass investigator in NCIS: NOLA...

Snoop Dog, anyone?
