HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Gillian Alexy joined CBS' upcoming "NCIS: LA" spinoff, "NCIS: Red," about mobile agents solving crimes across the United States, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"NCIS: Red" will be launched in the spring with an episode of "NCIS: LA" serving as the pilot.

Alexy's character, Special Agent Claire, is described as "educated, worldly, athletic and as tough as she is beautiful," a synopsis of the show read.

Alexy previously appeared on DirecTV's "Damages."
