at . Comments

Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo may be done with NCIS, but they're not done with CBS. 

The two former series regulars have joined forces to develop MIA, a brand new drama for the network. 

The series would focus on a homicide detective who is given a brand new partner to solve cases in Miami.

Desperate to complete her final undercover assignment, the partner struggles to keep her personal life away from her job. 

The pilot will be penned by Shepard Boucher, who will serve as an Executive Producer alongside.

Weatherly currently stars on the drama, Bull, at CBS. That show is entering its third season next month.

He appeared on the first 13 seasons of NCIS as Tony DiNozzo, before making his big departure back in 2016 to take on new projects. 

de Pablo appeared on the procedural drama from 2005-2013 as Ziva David. She went on to star in the miniseries, The Dovekeepers at the network.

In fact, her last credit as an actress was in the 2016 TV movie, Prototype. 

As of now, there are no plans for either to star on MIA if CBS opts to order a pilot for the show. 

If Bull was not a thing at CBS, this would be the perfect opportunity to bring these two stars back together on the small screen. 

On NCIS, Ziva and Tony were romantically involved and were called "Tiva" by fans of the series.

At the close of NCIS Season 13, viewers were shocked to learn that Ziva was killed off-screen and that she had given birth to Tony's daughter.

This storyline tied in with Weatherly's exit storyline. It was a controversial conclusion for both characters, and fans were not impressed.
