Gillian Alexy will play Special Agent Claire on “Red.”

“NCIS: Red” (from executive producer Shane Brennan) focuses on a mobile team of agents who have to live and work together while crisscrossing America solving crime (think Scooby Doo and the gang).

In the spring the backdoor pilot will air disguised as an “NCIS: LA” episode.

Claire, though she sees herself as a tomboy, is a beautiful but tough top- of- the- class Harvard grad, who has trained with the Navy Seals. She loves photography, which she inherited from her father, a war correspondent. She loves all things military, and has lived with a British SAS soldier.

Scott Grimes (“ER”) will play Dave, the team’s forensic specialist. John Corbett (“Parenthood”) will play NCIS special agent Roy Mills. “NCIS: LA’s” assistant director Owen Granger will again be played by Miguel Ferrer. Edwin Hodge “Red Dawn” will be Special Agent Kai.

Alexy is represented by Stone Manners Agency, Mark Morris and Associates and Group Entertainment. Alexy has also appeared in “McLeod’s Daugthers,” “Unforgettable,” “Nurse Jackie” and “Blue Bloods.”

“Damages” is a legal thriller that ran five season on FX and Audience Network.
