Season Finale Tuesday, May 15 from 9 to 11 PM ET/PT on CBS
 
          “Checkmate, Part I” and “Checkmate, Part II” – Pride assembles an off-the-books team with hacker Elvis Bertrand (Tom Arnold), retired Green Beret Sydney Halliday (Riann Steele) journalist Oliver Crane (Mark Gessner) and attorney Elliott Newman (John Cothran, Jr.), to search for a loophole when he faces a grand jury indictment for abuse of power. Also, Pride and the team uncover a sinister plot during the New Orleans Tricentennial Fleet Week celebration, on back-to-back episodes of the fourth season finale of NCIS: NEW ORLEANS. Lou Diamond Phillips guest stars as Deputy Chief Gossett.
 

          NCIS: NEW ORLEANS is a drama about the local field office that investigates criminal cases involving military personnel in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence. Leading the team is Special Agent Dwayne Pride, a.k.a. “King,” a native of New Orleans who is driven by his need to do what is right. Working with Pride is his longtime friend and colleague Special Agent Christopher Lasalle, who plays hard but works harder; tough and acerbic Special Agent Tammy Gregorio, a former FBI Agent who was sent to New Orleans to investigate NCIS and upon completion joined Pride’s team; former ATF agent Sonja Percy, who is still adjusting after years of solo undercover assignments; and Forensic Agent Sebastian Lund, a brilliant scientist who left the lab and after much training become an agent. Supporting them is coroner Dr. Loretta Wade, who is as eccentric as she is smart and Investigative Computer Specialist Patton Plame, an animated and talented hacker. This colorful city that harbors a dark side is a magnet for service personnel on leave, and when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Pride’s team is at its best.
