'NCIS: Los Angeles' debuts 'Red' spin-off with John Corbett and Kim Raver: What did you think?
The unique situation these officers find themselves in allows for something that most of the shows in the genre can't offer fans: the audience gets to "go home" with the team, because the team is home. They live and work in two giant trailers that can be flown to various locations, so that they can bring their entire field office with them when they go.
"These people eat sleep and work together 24/7," showrunner Shane Brennan tells EW. "They get up in the morning, they see each other in their pajamas, they see each other at their worst, then they argue over who's going to take the last slice of bed to make toast, grab their laundry and on the way to a crime scene, drop their laundry off to be done. It's a great opportunity to see what happens to crime [investigators] in their home life."
The on-the-go lifestyle has its perks, obviously, but it also has some downfalls -- namely, their technology isn't as state-of-the-art as it is on other "NCIS" shows, and living in close quarters can make for some uncomfortable situations.
