Melrose Place alum Stephanie Jacobsen is joining the cast of NCIS as a "flirtatious" FBI agent who works with Tony (Michael Weatherly) on a case involving a terrorist threat against Navy researchers, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Does this mean Tony's finally moving on from Ziva (Cote de Pablo)?
The latest installment in the NCIS franchise, NCIS: New Orleans, premieres this fall on CBS. But viewers have already gotten an introduction to the crew down in the Big Easy thanks to a two-part episode that aired this spring as part of the original NCIS.
In the video below — which is exclusive to TVGuide.com and will also be available as part of the NCIS Season 11 DVD set, out Tuesday — executive producer Gary Glasberg and other members of the show's production team explain how the two-part episode came together, and offer a behind-the-scenes look at the planning process that went into creating NCIS: New Orleans.

NCIS viewers will get a glimpse at a younger version of Ducky (David McCallum) this season.
Adam Campbell will guest-star in a flashback episode that offers background on the team's chief medical examiner, TVGuide.com has learned.
When at first you do succeed: do it again. Imitation, not innovation, was the prevailing takeaway when CBS presented its fall prospects (and one notable midseason contender) at the TCA press tour on Thursday.
Not that the network's entertainment chairman Nina Tassler had any apologies for doubling down on what works — not when a franchise like NCIS (launching its second spinoff in September) can achieve what she called the "creative holy grail" with its global dominance, or when syndication and/or streaming deals with outlets like Hulu, Amazon and WGN add to the bottom line for shows including the acclaimed The Good Wife and Elementary and the sci-fi hits of the last two summers.
