First Lady Michelle Obama will appear in an NCIS episode in conjunction with "Joining Forces," a nationwide initiative supporting service members, veterans and their families, on Tuesday, May 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.
In the NCIS episode "Homefront," First Lady Michelle Obama welcomes NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the wife of a Marine to the White House for a "Joining Forces" roundtable with military spouses. The extras cast in the roundtable scene were actual military spouses.
In 2011, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden came together to launch "Joining Forces," a nationwide initiative calling all Americans to rally around service members, veterans and their families and support them through wellness, education and employment opportunities.
"Filming inside the White House was a dream come true for the ‘NCIS’ cast and crew," said Executive Producer Gary Glasberg. "It was such a pleasure working with First Lady Michelle Obama and it’s our honor to support the ‘Joining Forces’ initiative and the military families that benefit from it."
NCIS stars Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Emily Wickersham, Sean Murray, Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, Brian Dietzen and David McCallum.
