Meet the new NCIS bosses.
Writing partners since 1977, Schenck and Cardea have been with NCIS since Season 1, and have together written more than 50 episodes of the series, as well as created and executive-produced numerous other series over the years, including Crazy Like a Fox and Bring 'Em Back Alive.
"The NCIS family suffered a tragic loss with the sudden passing of our showrunner, Gary Glasberg. It's with heavy hearts that we assume his duties," Schenk and Cardea said in a statement. "We are fortunate to be surrounded by an incredibly talented and dedicated cast and crew, which will make the transition that much easier. Thank you to the NCIS fans for the outpouring of love we have all received."
Glasberg died suddenly Sept. 28 at age 50.
NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
