Meaning, those of you all hoping to see a "Tiva" reunion - a play on the names of their characters, Ziva David (Pablo) and Anthony DiNozzo (Weatherly) - might be slightly disappointed as neither of the actors is going to recreate their once-sizzling chemistry.However, the 'NCIS' vets would be joining the crew of the new series (also a cop drama), currently in development at CBS, as executive producers.Titled 'MIA', the series follows a detective duo - one a newly minted homicide detective and the other a more experienced and by-the-book partner - as they solve crime in the heart of Miami. When things begin to heat up though, it might get a little jarring for one of them as personal entanglements threaten to jeopardize the future.Actor Michael Weatherly attends the NCIS 100th Episode celebration at the Valencia Studios on September 4, 2007 in Valencia, California.Created and written by Shepard Boucher - who has been associated with other popular TV projects including 'Riverdale', 'Angie Tribeca', and 'Undateable' - the new cop drama will see Boucher executive producing alongside Weatherly and Pablo.
