The Naval Criminal Investigation Service's Office of Special Projects takes on the undercover work and the hard to crack cases in LA. Key agents are G. Callen and Sam Hanna, streets kids risen through the ranks.
A spin-off of "NCIS" that is set in the Crescent City. The cases and lives of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service's New Orleans branch, which consists of Senior Special Agent Dwayne Cassius "King" Pride, Special Agent Christopher LaSalle, and Special Agent Meredith Brody.
The show follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.

He is the only regular recurring cast member to appear on film in all episodes from seasons 1-10. See more »
In several episodes, the show's writers confuse the United States Penitentiary at Leavenworth and the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. The USP is a federal prison. The USDB is the military prison. On several occasions pictures of the USP are used to represent the Disciplinary Barracks. See more »
Following in his Father's footsteps as a naval aviator, lieutenant commander Harmon Rabb Jr. suffered a crash while landing his Tomcat on a storm tossed carrier at sea. Diagnosed with night blindness, Harm transferred to the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps, which investigates, defends, and prosecutes the law of the sea. There with fellow JAG lawyer Major Sarah MacKenzie, he now fights in and out of the court room with the same daring and tenacity that made him a top gun in the air.

I've always been a huge fan of Don Bellisario's creations, starting with 'Airwolf' (still my all-time favourite), and then 'Quantum Leap', but J.A.G. is really Don's excuse to get back to what he does best... military-based drama series (preferably with some big aerial toys to play with).
I loved the 1st Season of J.A.G. especially... the scripts and cast were at their best (with Andrea Parker - who later moved on to one of the main roles in 'The Prefender'), Tracey Needham and Andrea Thompson, but a network & cast change at the start of the 2nd Season brought about a slight watering down of the show [the same happened after the superb 1st Season of 'Airwolf'] increased the ratings - so much so, that by its current 1999-2000 5th Season, it is now a Top 20 Nielsen show.
The show has returned more to its action roots with the 4th and 5th Seasons, so I'm happy again.
Some of the 2nd & 3rd Season episodes are terrible though - including the one based in Northern Ireland, which was completely unrealistic. Like the Russian post above this one, the producers/writers of the show should visit other countries first before using every foreign stereotype they can come up with.
But, in the end, I still wouldn't miss this show (the only one I currently even make time to watch regularly) as it is, after all, a Belisarius Production!
