Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and team need to figure out if there is a particular target. Meanwhile, Ducky's (David McCallum) protégé, Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen), welcomes fatherhood.
NCIS 11 x 17 was written by Steven D. Binder and directed by Arvin Brown. This duo also teamed up on NCIS episodes "Devil's Triad" and "Devil's Trifecta."

NCIS Season 11 is set to air the potential backdoor pilot of "NCIS New Orleans." Reports say all the characters will be seen in Episodes 18 and 19, airing on Mar. 25 and Apr. 1, respectively. The NCIS 11x18 episode is titled, ""Crescent City Part 1."
In NCIS Season 11, Episodes 18 and 19, NCIS New Orleans lead Scott Bakula ("Quantum Leap," "Men of a Certain Age") will be introduced as Gibbs' friend.

"I'm watching the style of an 'NCIS' episode with this remarkable city as a backdrop, and it feels familiar," NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg told Nola.com. He adds, "But it's just different enough that I feel like I'm watching something special."
Some 17 million viewers tuned in a week ago to watch NCIS Season 11, Episode 16, "Dressed to Kill." This is the the show's 250th episode. Robert Wagner guest stars as Tony DiNozzo, Sr. He finally meets the new NCIS probie, Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham).
