Plot Synopsis

Special Agents 'G' Callen and Sam Hanna go deep undercover for the Office of Special Projects (OSP), a division of NCIS that is charged with apprehending dangerous and elusive criminals that pose a threat to the nation's security. They assume false identies and utilize the most advanced technologies, putting their lives on the line to bring down their targets. Assisting the team is: the all-knowing Henrietta "Hetty" Lange who oversees the staff and is tasked with providing everything from micro-surveillance cameras to cars for the team; Special Agent Kensi Blye, the exceptionally bright daughter of a slain Marine who lives for the adrenaline rush that comes with undercover work; Marty Deeks, a seasoned LAPD undercover detective who was recruited to the team by Hetty; Tech Operator Eric Beale, who has mastered every gadget and computer in the Ops Center; and the recent addition, Intelligence Analyst Nell Jones, who won the team's respect with her spot on intelligence assessments and her shrewd insights. At the end of the third season, Callen shot the Chameleon in public, and starts Season 4 on probation. Plus, in the new season Hetty must adjust to retired life after her resignation.
