NCIS Creator Reveals Shocking Reason Emmy Nods Were Denied!

NCIS co-creator Don McGill isn’t shocked that the hit show was overlooked by the Emmy awards.

The immensely popular police procedural series, which made its debut on September 23, 2003, has spawned four successful spin-off shows and continues to hold the top spot as CBS’s premier broadcast drama.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, conducted in honor of the show’s twentieth anniversary, McGill, who, along with Donald P. Bellisario, co-created the series, explained that NCIS was never really driven by the desire to win awards.

It’s not the type of show that aimed for awards,” commented McGill. “It was primarily focused on attracting viewers, so I’m not surprised that it was never really in the running for Emmy consideration.”

Mark Horowitz, the show’s executive producer, shares this sentiment, likening the series to a beloved dessert, saying, “I sometimes playfully describe NCIS as chocolate cake. Everyone knows the taste of chocolate cake, yet you still crave it.”

Regarding the show’s immense popularity with its audience, Horowitz noted, “You could certainly argue that the series resonates particularly well with viewers who may lean politically conservative or reside in more rural areas.

“But at the same time, we’ll go on a college campus, and everybody there watches the show, even in Southern California. Obviously, I think it’s more popular in the central states than on the coasts.”

Awards or not, the show continues to produce spin-offs with the latest instalment in the franchise NCIS: Sydney set to premiere on Tuesday, November 14 at 8pm on CBS.

The series will now air on Tuesdays with episodes being made available on demand and to stream for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers. Paramount+ Essential subscribers will be able to access the episode a day after it airs.
